People using RPMs can just install the security updates just as easily
as a new Cyrus RPM. The Red Hat advisory said a patch is available even
for Red Hat 7.1; are you still actively maintaining packages for Red Hat

And what is better? Hiding the problem under the carpet, or saying "See,
you have a security bug that is known for 4 years. If you have a bug
that old you probably have lots of other unfixed security bugs as well.
Go fix your system!". If you do care about the users, you should educate
them to always install security updates.
