 > I didn't realize it was important to keep these well know issues a
 secret. There was no problem discussing these kinds of issues in #14571 -
 how are these issues different? It's more third party library code that
 isn't maintained, just like the GTK bundle, right?

 anything interesting anyway) is discussing known vulnerabilities.

 Is it not a common practice to keep security issues private until they're

 It is no different than #14571, I should have said something sooner.  I
 figured the cat was out of the bag already because it was posted; I didn't
 realize you were going to keep going.

 Sure they're "known" vulnerabilities in the library that they exist in,
 but they're not "known" in Pidgin.
