The EPSON Network utility included with some older Epson printers installs a binary with weak permissions, which can allow a low privilege user to increase their privileges and take control of the system.


Successful exploitation of this vulnerability can lead to unauthorised control of the system by a low privilege user. Epson is not aware of any reported incidents to date.
