Parent article: A serious sendmail security hole
Maybe 10 years ago it was a mess of security holes but the Sendmail folks have learned their lesson.
They have learnt their lessons indeed. That's why they ditched the monolithic spaghetti hell of Sendmail 8 and are writing Sendmail X from scratch! Anyone who has taken a look at the horrible crufty source code of Sendmail 8 knows it's not maintainable anymore. It has constructs like macros that contain return statements, functions that go on for pages and pages, all kinds of if-else statements for obsolete configuration file verions, etc.... yuk!
