Release 2.81

MIMEDefang 2.81 is available on the download page.

MIMEDefang 2.81 Release Notes:

  • Don't barf if the installed version of Sys::Syslog has a developer tag added (like 0.33_01 on Debian Stretch).
  • Make mimedefang and mimedefang-multiplexor write their PID files as root to avoid an unprivileged user tampering with the pidfiles. Thanks to Michael Orlitzky for pointing this issue out.
    You should move your PID files out of the MIMEDefang spool directory and into a standard root-owned directory like /var/run. Use the -o option to create lock files in the spool directory. The sample init scripts have been updated to reflect this.
