: Dragonfly Commerce has notified CVE of a dispute over some recent 
: Diabolic Crab posts on price modification and SQL injection.

: >report are results of error messages from the author typing in invalid

Right.. merely inputting invalid content doesn't mean the product isn't 
vulnerable though.

So far this is a he said, she said issue. Historically many vendors have 
said "we're not vulnerable" and offered little beyond that, only to find 
from subsequent examination that it was indeed vulnerable.

Except the dcrab advisory supposedly..

Assuming the customer *noticed* it .. *and* diagnosed it .. *and* reported 

I really hate these types of disputes.
