Please be as kind as to open bug reports for them, including the links 
to the security issues that are solved by those updates.

We've had a lot of security bug reports so far, see 
https://bugs.mageia.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=ALL+CVE because many of 
our packagers missed the news about security fixes or were too busy to 
take proper action. Luckily some people took the trouble to open reports 
for them, that really helps to get the fixes done by either the 
maintainers of the packages involved or by others who are willing to help.

Thanks in advance,
