      Searched for this on Woody, only found a passing reference to it, thought it should be blared in full:

      According to Bleeping:

      “Millions of mail servers running vulnerable Exim mail transfer agent (MTA) versions are currently under siege, with attackers gaining permanent root access via SSH to the exploited machines according to security researchers.”

      Ref: CVE-2019-10149
