Sebastian is correct. It was an error to approve the message given he
clearly stated in the comments he did not wish it distributed. For
that I apologize.
That being said, it been quite obvious that for a while now that this
exploit is being shared in the underground and has been used actively
to break into systems. Better control of exploits one does not wish
to see distributed may be called for.

The X-Approved-By header was inserted by LISTSERV. We been using ezmlm,
which does not insert the header, for a while now.
