First of all, to that security company. Good job really publicizing a vulnerability without checking with unpaid developers of a complete open source project.

Actually, they notified us about it a couple weeks ago, and gave us enough time to fix it before announcing the vulnerability.

Spam Finally Moving Email To Port 587 195

The Washington Post's Security Fix blog is reporting that Verizon, long identified as the largest ISP source of spam, is moving to require use of the submission port, 587, in outbound mail — and thus to require authentication.

Verizon pledges to clean up their zombie problem quickly. We'll see.
