Security Corporations are going Bug- hunting

An article published by John Leyden on theregister.co.uk

MITRE Corp, the organization which sets the industry standards for classifying security vulnerabilities goes one step further in security. The corporation is now considering the multiplication of Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in order to enhance the quality of bug reports in terms of security. Currently supporting up to 9,999 vulnerabilities, MITRE will be multiplying this digit by one hundred, extending this range up to 999,999!

This matter will be discussed at the RSA2013 Conference, taking place at the end of the month in San Francisco, USA.
