From what I read the first #1 and #2 (secunia) map to wireshark
wnpa-sec-2012-02.html and wnpa-sec-2012-03.html respectively, so they
should be all good? Or did I misread it (this is entirely possible =).
No, my fault, sorry about that - I misread it. No new CVE needed. Using
Agostino's original request, Item 1 from SECUNIA:47494 is the same as
Wireshark item 2 (wnpa-sec-2012-02.html) as listed later in Agostino's
request, to which you had already assigned CVE-2012-0042. I originally
read this like there were separate requests, and I missed that there were
overlapping references that talked about the same issue.
