<a href="http://arxiv.org/find/astro-ph/1/au:+Nicastro_F/0/1/0/all/0/1">F. Nicastro</a> (1 and 2) ((1) INAF Osservatorio Astronomico di Roma, Via Frascati, Monte Porzio Catone (RM), Italy, (2) Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Cambridge, MA, USA)

We present a re-analysis, with newly acquired atomic data, of the two
detections of two highly ionized intervening OVII absorbers reported by
Nicastro and collaborators (2018). We confirm both intervening Warm-Hot
Intergalactic Medium OVII detections, and revise statistical significance and
physical parameters of the absorber at $z=0.4339$ in light of its partial
contamination by Galactic interstellar medium NII K$alpha$ absorption.
