That explains mone and others' inability to compromise 4.7x. Interesting, thanks.

Paul Fisher and I have successfully run the exploit against a copy of
Exim running in a debugger on debian lenny, and we believe it utilizes
this bug:

It was fixed in 4.70, but not in the version currently in debian
stable.
