I've actually had a little bit of an email exchange, and he's a lost 
cause.  Somehow, the fact that OSVDB included the filename of the 
default database as a vector is a cardinal sin, and horrifyingly 
inaccurate, but databases existing unencrypted and available to any 
local user isn't a big deal.  So, I modified the entry to be more like 
Secunia, and state that all databases are trivially available, and 
that's somehow better in his mind.

Oh well, he also said I need to find a more productive use of my time. 
Like not continuing my discussion with him, I think :)
