[VOTEPRI] 12 high priority candidates as of 5/1/2000



The following 12 candidates have been assigned a high priority.  They
are all acknowledged by the software vendor.  Some of them need more
than one vote for acceptance, so your voting will be appreciated.

The most important of these are CAN-1999-0210 and CAN-1999-0493.  CERT
activity reports indicate that these bugs are still being exploited.
Also note that CAN-1999-0387 was originally proposed in July 1999, but
did not include any references at the time.  Since then, Microsoft
released a security bulletin about it.

Summary of votes to use (in ascending order of "severity")
----------------------------------------------------------

ACCEPT - voter accepts the candidate as proposed
NOOP - voter has no opinion on the candidate
MODIFY - voter wants to change some MINOR detail (e.g. reference/description)
REVIEWING - voter is reviewing/researching the candidate, or needs more info
RECAST - candidate must be significantly modified, e.g. split or merged
REJECT - candidate is "not a vulnerability", or a duplicate, etc.

1) Please write your vote on the line that starts with "VOTE: ".  If
   you want to add comments or details, add them to lines after the
   VOTE: line.

2) If you see any missing references, please mention them so that they
   can be included.  References help greatly during mapping.

3) Note that a "MODIFY" is treated as an "ACCEPT" when counting votes.
   So if you don't have sufficient information for a candidate but you
   don't want to NOOP, use a REVIEWING.

********** NOTE ********** NOTE ********** NOTE ********** NOTE **********

Please keep in mind that your vote and comments will be recorded and
publicly viewable in the mailing list archives or in other formats.

KEY FOR INFERRED ACTIONS
------------------------

Inferred actions capture the voting status of a candidate.  They may
be used by the moderator to determine whether or not a candidate is
added to CVE.  Where there is disagreement, the moderator must resolve
the issue and achieve consensus, or make the final decision if
consensus cannot be reached.

- ACCEPT = 3 non-MITRE votes to ACCEPT/MODIFY, and no REVIEWING or REJECT
- ACCEPT_ACK = 2 non-MITRE ACCEPT/MODIFY, and vendor acknowledgement
- MOREVOTES = needs more votes
- ACCEPT_REV = 3 non-MITRE ACCEPT's but is delayed due to a REVIEWING
- SMC_REJECT = REJECT by Steve Christey; likely to be rejected outright
- SMC_REVIEW = REVIEWING by Steve Christey; likely related to CD's
- REVIEWING = at least one member is REVIEWING
- REJECT = at least one member REJECTed
- REVOTE = members should review their vote on this candidate
