    "Using this exploit to crash Linux systems requires the (ab)user to have shell access or other means of uploading and running the program (like cgi-bin and FTP access). The program works on any normal user account, root access is not required. This exploit has been reported used to take down several "lame free-shell providers" servers (running code you know will damage a system intentionally and hacking in general is illegal in most parts of the world and strongly discouraged). "

    From the above it seems its not an exploit people can work from the outside in. They have to have a way to get the file in and then run it. I figure if they can get that much then there are a hundred more programs out there that can do much more damage.
