I think the CVE in the alias is a typo? Should that be CVE-2016-9297?

Comment 5 Doran Moppert 2016-11-17 06:51:45 UTC
Thanks Salvatore, you are correct.  Bug 1395264 is the correct ticket for CVE-2016-9297, this one is a duplicate/misfire.

I will close it as such, but first need to investigate how some of our tools are responding to this inconsistency.
