Exim-vulns/21 Nails: Qualys discovered multiple severe local and remote vulns in EXIM-MTA, see the Qualys-Advisory.
Patches and updates for distros are available since 2021-04-27
PoC-able code for 10 of these vulns had been released in the advisory as well, so exploitation should be expected in a couple of days. Some of the vulns might be chained for a complete system-takeover.
Since Exim-vulns had been seen in state-sponsored attacks in 2020, we urge you to patch all affected systems
