Subject: iDEFENSE Security Advisory 08.16.04: CVS Undocumented Flag Information Disclosure Vulnerability

Hi iDEFENSE,

> This issue was patched in the latest (June 9th) releases of CVS,
> specifically 1.11.17 & 1.12.9.

well guess WHY it was fixed... maybe because it was found and 
reported by Sebastian Krahmer back ub May?

The bug was officially fixed with the last releases because it was
already found at that time by Sebastian Krahmer. So I suggest that you
ask him for his bank account.

It is quite funny that this is the 3rd (or maybe 4th) incident I know
off, where you pay people for vulnerabilities that were already found
and reported by others.
