=======================================================================1) Word From Secunia:

The Secunia staff is spending hours every day to assure you the best
and most reliable source for vulnerability information. Every single 
vulnerability report is being validated and verified before a Secunia
advisory is written.

Secunia validates and verifies vulnerability reports in many different
ways e.g. by downloading the software and performing comprehensive
tests, by reviewing source code, or by validating the credibility of
the source from which the vulnerability report was issued.

As a result, Secunia's database is the most correct and complete source
for recent vulnerability information available on the Internet.
