CVE-2008-0600 & Insecure pop/imap

From: Russell McOrmond <russell@flora.ca>
Date: Wed, 13 Feb 2008 17:41:32 -0500

   I have upgraded and rebooted all 3 servers in response to the kernel 
security update.

Notes from RedHat at https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0129.html

I also blogged about this at:
http://blogs.itworldcanada.com/insights/2008/02/13/security-in-transparency-and-accountability-linux-kernel-root-exploit/


   I noticed last night that insecure access to pop/imap was 
inadvertently enabled.  Access should be secured via SSL (IE: imaps , pops).
