IGNITe/400 Mailing List Archive Entry
All,

As you have seen over the past several days anyone running an unprotected
open SMTP server is exposed to possible use by Spammers. We've always known
that this exposure existed. Unfortunately two organizations, OMB and RBL
have been formed to develop a "black list" of sites allowing folks to use
their servers as a "RELAY" point.

If you get on one of these black lists, send them a note explaining what
happened and ask to be removed.

I have spoken with a member of the IBM security team who has advised that
they are working on this exposure and will have SMTP PTF's available within
the next two months. We will monitor and alert everyone when the PTF's are
available.
