I know in some parts of the world it's already 2010, so I'd like to take the time to wish you all a Happy New Year. Here's looking for a safer 2010, as the movement away from OS exploits and into client exploits gets hotter, I think this will be a busy year.
For those of you celebrating or are going to celebrate, be safe.

As my colleague (Swa) here at the ISC said in the coffee room this morning, "It's been awhile since Sendmail has put out a release that fixed security issues."
You may review the release notes here: http://www.sendmail.org/releases/8.14.4
About mid-way down are the security enhancements that have been made to the product. Please consider upgrading and let us know how it works out. I am sure all the *nix distros that bundle sendmail (pretty much all of them) will be following soon with their own packaged releases.
