Hi Jeff,

Thank's for answer. I think I didn't express well (my english is horrible).
I was trying to say there is no link in that "[url]". When I wrote [CVE] was
just an example that points me to somewhere, it could be [Bugtraq] or so.
I'll update ACID anyway...
If It don't show me the link I write again...
