Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A possible hacker may use this flaw to conduct a denial of service
attack against your business by preventing legitimate users
from printing their work, or against your network, by changing
the IP address of the printer so that it conflicts with the IP
address of your file server.
