It's going to be moderately interesting to see if crts ever bothers to respond in this thread or if it is just a "drive by shooting".

It is already interesting how few fault-finding threads there usually are here but how they've ramped up since the churn over a new release.

Regarding gender pronouns I thought that was defined in a T Shirt

Amazed that people don't know about the ekziztsenze of the National Vulneratbility Database: https://www.dasher.com/tag/national-...lity-database/

So when is the alien invasion of Earth? (Sorry, just read that like it was part of a movie plot.)

Thank you for the update, we wait with baited breath to find out what the issue is.

That happens after the tempest is gone, from what I've seen even at the big houses like Intel.

Thank you.

Though it could have saved some posts in this thread, if that was post #2.

@OP: thanks for your work. Looking forward to hear the full story later, but if anyone should stumble upon vulnerabilities in the future, this most certainly is not the way to report it...

Cheers!

It would have helped if crts would have contacted Pat instead of posting here first with all the drama. Then perhaps this whole thread would have not happened.

But, at least, it is a valid issue report (no matter how less critical it's) or it's just a false alarm?
