The vulnerability has been remediated in newer versions of Yocto Project, including 5.0, 3.1.31, 4.0.16, and 4.3.2, where the fix has been backported to bitbake to address the issue. The severity of this vulnerability is rated as high, with a base score of 8.8 according to CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H vector string notation, indicating potential risks to confidentiality and integrity of an organization's systems if exploited remotely over a network connection.
