I was not commenting on any particular vulnerability. I was
suggesting that rather than posting vulnerabilities directly to this
list, send them to Patrick so that he can assess them first.
If the vulnerability has not been addressed, a public posting just
gives crackers notice
If the vulnerability has been addressed, but the posting makes it
sound new, it just makes PmWiki look less secure than it really is.
