Test advisory? #158

Is there a test package with a test advisory so that an advisory reporting pipeline can be tested? I'm thinking of something along the lines of the EICAR test virus signature to test a malware detection pipeline.

The advisory would have a unique tag and/or category so that it can be unambiguously identified as a test for which no action needs to be taken. (Or maybe there could be multiple test advisories with different properties but sharing the same unambiguous "this is a test" marker.)

I could use a real package with a real advisory, but I'd be concerned that it would interfere with other dependencies, and it wouldn't be clear that it was just there for a test.

Sounds like a good idea. I'd suggest creating a clearly labeled "test crate", e.g. rustsec-test-crate, and file a single test advisory against that. Perhaps we could create two versions of the crate, one which is "vulnerable" and one which is "unaffected".
