    Look at this page under vulnerabilities. Bugtraq id's are numbers assigned to security holes in software

    Hi True Orient,

    Bugtraq ID's are the identifcation numbers given to vulnerabilities listed by SecurityFocus

    That's the best I can do, maybe someone else will add more.

    Regards,

    snap

    ronjor, you beat me to the post. ;)

    How can anyone verify the presence of these Bugtraqs? What can be done about them?

    The vendor has to patch the software.

    Thanks Ronjor,

    Can they be verified? How could the other poster scan for vulnerabilities even without access to the server?

    I'll leave that question for an admin to answer.
    Relax and have fun.
