When @nmeum and I wanted to disclose a vulnerability yesterday, I was convinced that RIOT didn't have a security team. This caused us to assess the impact ourselves and choose a full-disclosure strategy. To our surprise, @miri64 et. al. immediately started to mitigate the issue, leading to it being fixed less than 24 hours after disclosure. Please accept my apologies for putting you through all that stress and a sleepless night!

In an attempt to still get something productive from this experience, I will now list ways in which I could have noticed the existence of a security team (in a rather obvious attempt at justifying myself, I guess (again, sorry...)):

* [ ] Mention on http://riot-os.org/
* [ ] Mention on https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT
* [x] Mention in the "New issue" template
* [ ] Publish security advisories (to devel@ and users@?)
* [ ] Create a list of security incidents (e.g. https://tls.mbed.org/security)
