Does SWsoft give guarantee against bugs in qmail?

    According to http://www-dt.e-technik.uni-dortmund.de/~ma/qmail-bugs.html there is an unfixed bug "Remote root access on machines with large memory" in qmail since 1998.

    Does SWsoft give me a guarantee against a an unpatched rootexploit from 1998?

    Does my hostingprovider give me a guarantee against a an unpatched rootexploit from 1998 because Plesk is his default admintool for customers?

    Just a question to consider if you you have a chance of avoiding Plesk.

    I am starting to plague my hostingprovider's helpdesk with questions regarding qmail, backup, spamfiltering.... so that he will see that Plesk is the expensive way to do a hostingbusiness.

    Don't believe everything you read (or give it a decent interpretation).

    The worst thing for security are humans. I've seen secure software being ruined by misconfiguration etc.
