Agreed.  If vuln DB's are going to be complete, they're going to monitor
these kinds of things anyway.  How could Secunia or any other organization
know when it's been really "published" or not?  If it's on a public site
then that's that.

On a side note... so THAT'S where Secunia got the Romang advisories that I
couldn't find anywhere else!  I had to create some CAN's with only the
Secunia advisory as a reference, but I like to point to the original
researcher advisory whenever possible.
