If the previous table lists a version in the Versions known to be not 
vulnerable column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to the 
listed version. If the listed version is older than the version you are 
currently running, or if the table does not list any version in the column, 
then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

published in the previous table. The Severity values and other security 
vulnerability parameters are defined in SOL4602: Overview of the F5 security 
vulnerability response policy.
