[Fwd: IMP 2.2.7 (SECURITY) released]

The following mail was sent to suse-security a while ago.
Today I looked up the patches on the update directory and still
no IMP 2.2.7 :-(

Is anything wrong with the patch or is there any other reason
not to supply a patch to a security problem?

While I'm at it: the recommended kernel for Suse EMail Server II
still seems to be 2.2.16. Version 2.2.19 never seems to have made
it to the update directory. Any reason?

Keep up the (otherwise) good work,

I found the following message on Bugtraq.
Is suse working on a fix for Suse EMail-Server II?
The patch on the update-server is still 2.2.6.

The three golden rules to ensure computer security are:
Do not own a computer; do not power it on; and do not use it
