Gotta Patch Sendmail

Urgh. The downside to having your own Linux box hosted is that you have to maintain the sucker. I got a note today from JohnCompanies about patching Sendmail. I don't want to be the asshole with the rooted server, so I guess I have to figure out how to get the thing working tonight (tomorrow?).

After I'm do it, I'll post the gory details here. It should be a matter of just downloading the RPM from RedHat and RPMing, but even though Linux is wonderful, it's still a PITA to do installs and shit like that and always takes me longer than I intend.

Anyways - if YOU have a server out there using Sendmail as well, please patch it ASAP.


A little later: Victor IMed and gave me a link to detailed instructions on how to replace Sendmail with Qmail specifically for JohnCompanies servers... nice.
