are you saying that this vulnerability is not new to the public?
The program phgrafx had some vulnerabilities published, but this one is not the same of any other that I can find in
securityfocus. One program can have a lot of vulnerabilities :)
But yes, this vulnerability is at least four years old, but was not public.
Anyway, QNX released Service Packs to solve some security problems in the past, and it's not our problem, we are
advising the customers, they can choose or not the company. If you are a customer you probably would like to know about
security issues in all product that you use. Also, we agree it's a crap vuln, that's why we took too long to release
it. Whatever, why hold it?
p.s.: Rodrigo and me are no longer working for Scanit, so it's just a personal opinion, not a company official
position. If you want to know about the company vulnerability release process or any other information, please, contact
the Scanit R&D team.
