The information in Secunia Advisory SA13040 is based on your own
Changelog at Sourceforge.
On 30th November you wrote to Secunia that this only affected the 1.4
branch. One hour later Secunia updated the advisory to reflect this and
you received an answer with a confirmation that we had updated the
If you spotted any other omissions back then, you could have contacted
us again - obviously you didn't.
Additionally, any information listed in product changelogs is considered
public knowledge. Naturally, we don't contact vendors before issuing
advisories based on information in their own changelogs / release notes.
Also, we are not going to remove this advisory, as it is based on your
own information. However, if you have any relevant additional
information, we will naturally review them and update the advisory

As a maintainer of Caudium Webserver I wishes the following things
1- Secunia didn't contact us about this "advisory" you have
certainly googled the bugtracker on sourceforge and make this
advisory without contacting us before, so this is NOT the rules
about security advisory.
2- The Advisory it partialy false. You write that it affects Caudium
1.x branch. Since there is only one branch about Caudium this is
really disinformation about our software.
3- Secunia DIDN'T contact us (if you look at the source there is
mailing lists, emails and whatever things to help third party
people to contact us.
4- The "advisory" (and even the lasted change logs) say all version
of Caudium which is false, the ONLY VERSION that have the
bug (because IT IS a bug) is 1.4RC1 not 1.4RC2 or even 1.0.xx /
5- You didn't TEST by yourself before releasing this advisory, I can
consider that as half-done work...
Because of that. I ask Secunia.com to REMOVE this advisory because all
its contents is false and inaccurate. I really hope that all
of other work of Secunia.com is better than the extract I just saw...
