Glad to. It requires a certain fairly difficult analysis of buffer overruns to
determine their possible effect. Privilege escalation is possible in certain
rare circumstances, much more common is running arbitrary commands. Because of
this, Oracle adopts a "guilty until proven innocent" attitude on code
compliance issues that involve arbitrarily large buffer overruns.
