[VIM] RedLevel RedAlert silliness

The red bar on the left indicates the amount of current vulnerablites
discovered throughout the world.
This bar updates every 15 seconds. If a new threat is discovered, it is
posted and displayed here.
The current "Active" number is 76. How do they get this? From the footer:
This demo of RedAlert fetches RSS from SecurityFocus.com; specifically,
the BugTraq mailing list. This RSS feed is then parsed, a number is
recorded, posted to a local MySQL database, and retrieved with a few lines
of ActionScript and PHP.
(and if you're wondering, the redlevel.org reference for CVE-2007-2806
doesn't work now, which is what lead me to this)
