Perfect example of an unknown app becoming a known target

A while back I wrote about a great email server called Icewarp. It wasn't bloatware - it had just what SMBs needed in an email server...Oh, and it wasn't a target for security exploits - an obvious added benefit. But as with anything else, you grow bigger, your app becomes more complex, and you'll no doubt become a bigger target for attacks. As of late Icewarp has grown a lot bigger....and apparently more complex. Here's a perfect example of this growth=target concept.

Ahh the days when things were simpler. I really do miss those DOS/Windows 3.1 days before security was cool.
