Subject: Sv: [exim] CVE-2019-15846: Exim - local or remote attacker can execute programs with root privileges

Shouldn't this be in connect ACL?
How would the deny in MAIL FROM prevent the exploit? What I have understand is that there is exploit in the SNI of the TLS negotiation, thus the whole connect attempt must be rejected right?

An Update to the mitigation for the current CVE:

Add - as part of the mail ACL (the ACL referenced by the main config
option "acl_smtp_mail"):

     deny    condition = ${if eq{\\}{${substr{-1}{1}{$tls_in_sni}}}}
     deny    condition = ${if eq{\\}{${substr{-1}{1}{$tls_in_peerdn}}}}

This should prevent the currently known attack vector.
