New sendmail security issues.. do we need a patch?

Hi all...

Last night I came across an article duscussing a newly discovered security flaw in sendmail. www.sendmail.org also talks about this flaw, and recommends a patch for this issue. Looking on RedHat's website, I found information right away, and they are offering a patch for this problem.

My question is, how does this flaw relate to sendmail on HP-UX? Do we need a patch, or is hp-ux's sendmail already protected? This would concern hp-ux 11.00, and 11.11, we have a few servers.

Thanks!
Mike
