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.
