As you can see, cve and scap are updated, but also very old are updated, too.
As I updated only one day before, I would not expect so much changes.

The only thing, I can imagine, is that scap and cve are daily created somehow, 
which might change the fingerprints.

I thought it worth, to point to this problem, although it is not destructive.

Thanks for your help. If you want you can answer me also in German, as I am 
German and of course also directly, if you prefer.

Best regards

Hans-J. Ullrich
