Sendmail NULL Character CA SSL Certificate Validation Security Bypass Vulnerability

http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/37543

"Sendmail is prone to a security-bypass vulnerability because the
application fails to properly validate the domain name in a signed CA
certificate, allowing attackers to substitute malicious SSL certificates
for trusted ones.

Successfully exploiting this issue allows attackers to perform
man-in-the-middle attacks or impersonate trusted servers, which will aid
in further attacks.

Versions prior to Sendmail 8.14.4 are vulnerable."
