Re: [TECH] CD:VAGUE (Vague Vendor Descriptions of Vulnerabilities)
Given an environment that will be affected by Digital Rights Management
and inherant potential DMCA
'violations' the definition of vague might take on alternate meaning.
If a suspected vulnerability can not
be detailed for fear of infringing on the publisher's copyright, a vague
presentation might be required until
the aforementioned publisher deems it reasonable to allow the
vulnerability to be thoroughly documented.
Whatever the ramifications are, the case of Adobe and Dmitry Sklyarov
sets an uncomfortable precedent.
