Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Red Hat (12/06/2007)

Red Hat doesn’t consider this a security issue. The arguments to the functions in question should always be under the control of the script author, rather than untrusted script input, so these issues would not be treated as security-sensitive.
