Default Exim update closes vulnerability

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...y-1181606.html

Quote:
The Exim developers have released version 4.74 of their message transfer agent (MTA), a maintenance and security update that addresses a privilege escalation vulnerability. The problem, which could allow attackers to gain root privileges, is caused by an error in the "open_log()" function that does not check a return value before creating log files.)
