New Record for the Largest CVE Entry
Last week my script that processes and logs daily CVE changes broke. It truncated inputs larger than 16000 bytes, because I believed that no CVE entry should ever be that large, therefore indicating some sort of trouble if it ever was. Guess what… The entry for CVE-2006-4339 reached 16941 bytes, with 352 references. This is an OpenSSL issue, and highlights how much we are dependent on it. It’s impressive work from MITRE’s CVE team in locating and keeping track of all these references.
