The remote mail server is vulnerable to a denial of service.
The remote Sendmail server, according to its version number, might be
vulnerable to a queue destruction when a local user runs
sendmail -q -h1000
If your system does not allow users to process the queue (which is the
default), you are not vulnerable.
Note that this vulnerability is _local_ only.
Upgrade to Sendmail 8.12.1 or later. As a workaround, do not allow users to
process the queue (RestrictQRun option).
