Re: sendmail -C: Known? Patches? (AIX 4.1.5)

As near as I can tell, no sendmail from Berkeley (back to 5.61, that
is, 1988, and probably before -- that was just the earliest one that
I had available to check) had this problem.  I suspect that if the
problem exists at all, it is IBM-specific.

: On several not-so-official WWW pages, I found a hint that
:
: /usr/lib/sendmail -C <any-file-you-want-to-read>
:
: produces "interesting" output.
:
: I tried that on our AIX 4.1.5 (as an ordinary user!) with
: "/etc/security/passwd", and it indeed displayed all the
: shadow passwords.
:
: I checked IBM's and CERT's archives about it and found nothing.
:
: Questions:
: 1.) Is the problem known?
: 2.) Does IBM have a fix for it?
: 3.) Is it fixed in the latest (non-IBM) sendmail releases?
