For the purpose of this discussion, is it correct to say that any Cache'
system with a database mounted is a server?

And what about development/test systems?
Are they vulnerable but will feel the impact?
Also, the alert says to delete just *.CSP, but is it fine to delete the
entire directories <cachesys>/dev and ./devuser on production systems?

I would like to have the vulnerability explained so that
(1) I can assess the threat to non-production systems; and
(2) I can avoid making a similar vulnerability in my code.
