Re: Qualcom (and other) Android CVE IDs

One comment: are we going to make IMPACT a required field at some point? I'm wondering if CVEs such as:


are worth having? There's no mention of the CVE in the github repo for the software:


There's nothing much in the Apple release notes:


Impact: A malicious HTTP/2 server may be able to cause undefined behavior

Description: Multiple issues existed in nghttp2 before 1.17.0. These were addressed by updating nghttp2 to version 1.17.0.

I suppose one of the charts in the deck we reviewed in the past few weeks addresses this problem where number of CVEs is reserved but not 'published.'
If Qualcomm (and others) are publishing the CVEs without submitting the descriptions back to Mitre, shouldn't someone be reaching out to them to 'remind' them of the process?
Or would this be a full time job for someone?

Also the thread on oss-sec:


With some interesting notes like:


I don't know about apple itself but in the clusterfuzz reports I see 4 public bugs about sqlite. However they have a very small (2 days) range of regression, i.e. a commit made in those two days causes the problem.
I didn't check, but I suspect they didn't go in any release.

FTR, the time you are seeing in the regression range is UTC:

At this point I don't know if apple referer to those issues or the mentioned issues are not public.

Basically these issues have CVE's but I (nor anyone else really) has any clue what is actually affected and if we need to deal with it or not.
Kind of defeats the point :P.
