Evaluator Impact

"Exploitation of this vulnerability allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the "ingres" user. By itself, this vulnerability does not have very serious consequences. However, when combined with the library loading vulnerability, it allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code with root privileges. " (iDefense)
