Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Red Hat (05/15/2008)

NVD clarification: To exploit this flaw an attacker needs to print a malicious file through the vulnerable filter (either themselves or by convincing a victim to do so), it should therefore be AC:M In CUPS, print filters run as an unprivileged user no superuser (root), therefore this should be scored C:P, I:P, A:P
