Question Broken CVE links in latest security updates?


Hi

Just noticed security updates of bind and dhcp. Then out of curiosity followed provided cve.mitre.org links. Surprisingly, those entries are completely unfilled. Recursive links related to entries are either broken.
Previous security update(php) I see fully filled now.

Is it intended to be this way? I mean, is there any reason to include link to blank pages, which gives us not info at all?

Regards

It is often the case with CVE that at the time an advisory is published there's nothing visible to the public yet. But it's better to publish the link that will be filled out eventually than not to publish it.

The mitre.org site is pretty useless at providing details. You'll usually find out much more by just googling the CVE numbers.
