Thank you to PSIRT for generally thorough advisories. :-)

I have a grievance though: The "Cisco IOS Software" section of "Software
Versions and Fixes" not longer includes a comprehensive list of affected
IOS releases but instead refers to the IOS Software Checker tool.

The IOS Software Checker tool is really nice in itself, but if you for
some reason have several different IOS releases running in your network
then checking each of these via lookup is a lot slower than just
skimming the list in the advisory.

Since the advisory contains a lot of information already, and since it's
beautifully organised into sections, I think a comprehensive list like
it has been before is a really good idea.

An example of an advisory with the comprehensive list:


Just my to zhents of course. :-)
