** REJECT ** DO NOT USE THIS CANDIDATE NUMBER. ConsultIDs: None. Reason: this candidate was originally recorded for a "SPLAT Remote Root Exploit" that was claimed to exist for Check Point SmartCenter. The claim has no actionable details and was disclosed by a person of unknown reliability who did not coordinate with the vendor. No people of known reliability have confirmed the original claim.
