So this getting into our system is an artifact of how we process the alerts. Our program looks for CVE references anywhere in the alert and believes the alert fixes those CVEs. In this case (and presumably others), that CVE was fixed in an earlier release and only appeared in the Changelog in the message.

I have sometimes wondered about those changelogs. It would seem to me that unless they only refer to the changes since the last release, they are fairly confusing to someone reading them. Is there a way for a human (or program) to determine which of those changelog entries actually correspond to the changes in the release that goes with the alert?
