I see "Active," "Fixed," "New," and "Re-Opened" and I'm curious what each term really means.
Active: I assume it means it's being worked on, but by whom?
Fixed: Has it been mitigated by a patch that has been added? Or does it mean a fix is available?
New: New to whom? In my network? Newly reported? Discovered recently? Since when?
Re-Opened: Does this mean that a previous patch didn't work?
Are there any others?
I'm trying to determine whether this is a field worth even reporting. RTFM is an acceptable answer, but I'd like to know which fine manual to read.
