Re: [TECH] Duplicate candidates - which one should be preferred?

2001-0145 does contain additional info as well as a link to a patch on MS
site.  Should probably give credit to the original poster but that isn't
CVE's job!

Since 2001-0145 is already cross-referenced in other advisories, and
there is just a little more detail in that entry, it would make
correlation efforts easier all the way around.  I there should be some
reference that it absorbed/replaced 2000-0756, and 2000-0746 should
reflect it was absorbed by 2001-0145.
