exim4 (4.87~RC6-2) experimental; urgency=medium
As part of the fix for CVE-2016-1531 updated Exim versions clean
the complete execution environment by default, affecting Exim and
subprocesses such as routers calling other programs, and thus may break
existing installations. New configuration options (keep_environment,
add_environment) were introduced to adjust this behavior. Because of the
possible breakage Exim will show a runtime warning if keep_environment is
not set.
The Debian exim4 configuration does not rely on specific environment
variables and therefore sets 'keep_environment =' (i.e confirm empty
environment).
Users of custom Exim configurations will need to check whether their setup
continues to work with the abovementioned upstream change and modify the
Exim environment as needed otherwise. If the setup works fine with empty
environment it is still necessary to set the main configuration option
"keep_environment =" to quiet the runtime warning.
