How did something gay like
CVE ID? And when I click on it,
"under review"? What's this gay shit is script kiddies with XSS
getting CVE ID's to look elite? Lmfao.
All the best,
CVE's are not a mark of "coolness" or interestingness, or valuable
research. They are identifiers. They identify bits of information
about vulnerabilities. XSS is indeed boring if its all you can
churn out but that doesn't mean they shouldn't have an identifier
to help exchange information among affected parties and track when
different advisories may relate to the same underlying
vulnerability. You don't have to care about the vulnerability, but
people running the software probably do. So chill out.
