RE: DHS helping to secure open source code

I just took a look at that list myself and with the exception of some os
specific implementations did not find hardware manufacturers listed in the
*nix section but rather in the multiple OS section. And yes, the Unix / Linux
section does include all affected *nix OS's.

I took a look at the list (
and feel it necessary to state that the amount of vulnerabilities are higher
than what I expected, but that the list also includes Mac OS X, AIX, FreeBSD,
HP-UX, Linux, Sony PSP, Sony Ericsson, QNX, and Symbian. As well, many web
applications are named including WordPress, Webmin, MediaWiki, Squirrelmail,
and countless PHP apps. What's interesting is that many of these apps listed
in the *nix section are not listed in the Win32 section even though many may
be deployed on the Microsoft platform. Topping this list off are many
embedded devices including manufacturers such as Linksys, Netgear, Nokia, LG,
Samsung, RIM.

Hope that can help shed some light.
