I imagine for a security issue like that someone will step in and update AC.

However it might be pertinent to ask whether that should be an upgrade
to 4.7x or a patch to the 4.6x line used in AC. Does anybody know if a
back-port of te the security patch will be available for 4.6x? I see
some other distros "patching" their old trees just by removing the
root privs from exim at least as a temporary measure.
