 Christey> The CVE content decision "CD:SF-LOC" recommends that multiple
   bugs of the same type, in the same version of software, should
   be combined.  Content decisions such as CD:SF-LOC ensure the
   long-term consistency of CVE across all vulnerability reports,
   since the amount of detail can vary widely.

   This issue also affects SSLeay and BSAFE SSL-C
 Christey> BUGTRAQ:20021003 Cisco Secure Content Accelerator vulnerable to SSL worm
 Christey> I should probably create a separate CAN for the BSAFE issues,
   unless there is a codebase relationship.
