Spin commented on CVE Cat Public Service Announcements

Hi Dima, My original plan for CVE Cat was to create images to cover all the general types of security bugs (i.e. SANS institute Top 20). I was thinking in terms of educational posters that educate/entertain, convey the information well, and are easy to understand. Moving forward, I'd rename this information campaign to MeowSec and emphasize awareness of the most common security bugs for software devs as a preventive measure (rather than trying to cover the ever-expanding list of actual CVEs which grows daily at a staggering rate).
For the general public, since software is eating the world, if people see these memorable ghostly cat pictures everywhere in their lives they'll be more likely to remember and be aware of the software that affects their daily lives.
If these posters appeared in schools, they could also serve as inspiration to kids to join services such as hackerone or otherwise get involved in software development/security.
Thanks, Spin

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, I've been reading more about CVEs and they do tend to be more specific. I was originally imagining these images as posters hanging up in kids classrooms for general software security education purposes. For real world CVEs, it's easy to create images with dynamic links to CVEs and patches. Alternately, I could rebrand this as SecurityCat, or something similiar, to just describe the general security related issues. As I read on places like https://twitter.com/CVEnew there's a lot of cases to cover!
Thanks Again,
