I am not surprised. Hypermail was in a terrible state back in pre-2.0 days when I did most of my efforts on removing all the static buffer size regulations internally.

All we need is people to point out the flaws when they find them.

I am a Hypermail developer, but we're several. You want us all to mail you?

After all, this is the hypermail development mailing list, why can't you tell the developers at once? You don't need to publish the exploit, just lead us to where the problem is in the code.

Sure, publish away, but please tell us first what we should be looking for.
