    Risk: High
    Remote: Yes

I tested doing "printf %1.262159f 1.1" in a shell login on 10.4.11 and
it took out my session. I imagine this means 10.4.11 is vulnerable as
well no? Tiger is still very popular in enterprise environments that are
slow to upgrade.

Could you check perl PoC ?
It should overwrite esi and edi register
