Due to this, I'm going to backpedal further on CVE-2019-15601 and no longer
list it on the site as a security problem on the security page [1] and the
page listing previous vulnerabilities [2]. (I'll commit that change in a
minute so the change will take affect within the hour.)

The page describing CVE-2019-15601 [3] will remain on the site for reference
and historical reasons.

I need to come up with a place to link to it so that it can be found. Perhaps
a new section for "redacted security problems" - which ideally should never
get another entry added to it.
