VOTE SUMMARY: active candidates in CERT and VEN-* clusters



The following candidates have not yet reached the Final Decision
phase.  They are from the CERT and VEN-* clusters.  A short voting
summary is provided, along with voters' comments for each candidate.
Some of these candidates may be examined more closely during the CVE
Review meetings.

Many of these touch on content issues that we've discussed recently,
especially the Same Codebase.  Such candidates will remain in the
Proposal phase until we can cleanly address the issue of what
constitutes "same codebase" and what to do if we can't be certain.
Others would require a significant change to the description, or even
a RECAST.

- Steve

ICMP messages to broadcast addresses are allowed, allowing for a
Smurf attack that can cause a denial of service.

COMMENTS:
 Northcutt> If you put it this way then ping mapping becomes part of smurf.  I
 Northcutt> would consider calling the vulnerability ICMP to broadcast addresses
 Northcutt> and in the text state allowing for a Smurf denial or service or ICMP
 Northcutt> ping mapping to acquire intelligence data about a network.
 Christey> This one is an interesting case.  As Steve noted, this configuration
 Christey> problem could allow for ping mapping as well.  I think the distinction
 Christey> is that for Smurf, there's a forged source IP address, and that's
 Christey> generally not the case when you're doing ping mapping.  So do we have
 Christey> a single vulnerability (ICMP to broadcast) with 2 separate
 Christey> implications?  Or, do we have two separate vulnerabilities, where one
 Christey> accounts for the "design flaw" of spoofed IP addresses and another one
 Christey> is a vulnerability because it allows information gathering?
