Re: Qpopper v4.0.x poppassd local root exploit

I'm working on a fix, but would like to point out that poppassd is not built nor installed by default. Also, poppassd is an inherently insecure protocol that sends both the current and new passwords in the clear, and in general should only be used with full understanding of the situation.
