Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Pegasus Imaging Corp. (11/08/2007)
Pegasus Imaging acknowledges these issues as affecting our controls in the same way that they affect any ActiveX control that allows files to be saved to absolute directory paths. We’re working on reducing the vulnerabilities of these issues and will publish additional information when available at www.pegasusimaging.com/faq.htm. In the meantime we recommend that users follow the Microsoft guidelines for reducing the vulnerability by increasing their browser security settings for ActiveX controls.
