Okay, I wrote up the following:


I will move this to "index.php" of course, but I showed some people
index.php, so I don't want that link visible to the world yet.  Give me
any changes that are needed, a CVE number, and/or the go-ahead and I'll
commit and push the page with the updated information.

(I admit I am no expert on what information is correct to disclose, so I
may be disclosing too much, too little, or the wrong stuff.)
