    Sendmail, Inc. Releases MIME Buffer Overflow Patch
        Several e-mail clients have recently been shown to have buffer
    overflows that may allow attackers to execute arbitrary commands on users'
    machines. Sendmail, Inc. has produced a patch for sendmail 8.9.1 that will
    proactively defend against such attacks. It is important to note that
    sendmail itself is not vulnerable to these attacks. By truncating long
    MIME headers before they arrive in end users' mailboxes, such attacks can
    be deflected before they can do damage.
