Could someone please assign a CVE for this?

So for surf suckless (http://surf.suckless.org/) please use CVE-2012-0842

Oops.  I mistook this for the HTTP client library.  Your reference is
correct, and it appears I consistently wrote "surf" (the correct

uzbl <http://uzbl.org/> (in the uzbl-browser wrapper script) and
netsurf <http://www.netsurf-browser.org/> (the nsgtk_check_homedir
function creates the dot directory with world-readable settings) have
a similar issue, but are from different code bases.  I think those
should get distinct CVEs, too.

I'll need advisories or code commits, or links to the vuln code to
assign CVE's (I need more information). Thanks!

Jakub has filed bugs:

Not ideal (I'd prefer upstream stuff) but it'll do.

uzbl: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=659379

Please use CVE-2012-0843 for this issue.

netsurf: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=659376

Please use CVE-2012-0844 for this issue.
