An interesting additional bit of information - a claim that the researcher
reverse-engineered the patches?

Your CVE-2006-0478 entry is largely correct.

The potential for this exploit was recognized by us approximately a
month ago, and we immediately developed a patch.

The initial announcement of this risk was made on our website at
http://creloaded.com , and it included a patch which will close the
vulnerability on all
known 6.0x and 6.1x releases.   Subsequently, announcements were made to
several security organizations by an individual who included links to a
freely available script written to take advantage of the previously
publicized issue on unpatched releases.

Despite multiple notifications to registered users, distribution of the
patch remained low and this remains a serious threat.  We strongly
encourage users of CRE Loaded 6.x , osCMax, and other users of
osCommerce who have installed HTMLArea based WYSIWYG editors and Admin
Access with Levels to modify thier installations at the earliest
possible moment.
