We need to improve
We need to really buck up and improve our systems. To know that in today's modern era, we are still witnessing lapses in our email systems. Attackers are getting more advanced by the day but we are simply becoming more vulnerable? This won't do if we wish to stay vigilant to counter any potential cyber attacks.

Dovecot+Exim Still an Issue
Some years ago (2013) RedTeam Pentesting GmbH revealed issues with Dovecot+Exim, but there are likely still systems out there with the Dovecot+Exim configuration as with this 2019 vulnerability.  Information Security is more than network-based, and for the one to be successful systems management teams need also to be on top of their application management procedures and maintenance.  I grew up on FOSS systems and wouldn't have a career without them, but the ease of build and deployment some of these open apps and systems offer is ripe for bad maintenance and configuration.  InfoSec must be harder on the joint management of network and systems and enforce policies for audit, patching and upgrading all software.  A solid configuration management system lends to success in this.
