Apologies to USSRLABS
From: Arvel () ALTN COM (Arvel Hathcock)

I wish to apologize publically for my rash statements to USSRLABS
concerning their recent DoS attack report against our
MDaemon/WorldClient software.  I assumed that the claim made by
USSRLABS, namely, that they had contacted our organization early
concerning the problem, was false.  I was overly confident in the
system we have in place to deal with these important error reports and
just assumed that since I didn't get the message, one was never sent.
I will not make that mistake again.  In fact, the vendor which helps us
handle our mdaemon.com domain was notified by USSRLABS although
USSRLABS sent the message to 'sales () mdaemon com' rather
than 'support () mdaemon com'.  I have been told that corrective measures
are being put in place to insure that even messages sent to an
incorrect address will be handled properly if they are of an important
security nature.

Again, USSRLABS has my humble apologies and also my thanks for finding
this problem so that we could get it fixed.
