Re: Regarding the Distributed Weakness Filing system

Can someone from Mitre at least confirm that they have seen this email? It's been over a week now with no reply from Mitre on anything:

"The vendor declined to fix the vulnerability".

That one is jaw-dropping.  By implication, if I refuse to fix it, you can't mention it, discuss it, or issue an advisory about it?  That's obstructing vulnerability disclosure, and a way to stimulate full disclosure by default for future issues.

Can MITRE please report how many times this reason is used?
