Yes, I use rkhunter, that was an rkhunter log message.

I update my Debian Lenny system daily, and that is my issue. If 4.71 is
available, why isn't it available to Lenny, or is this an rkhunter failing?

basically that's what the rkhunter log says, the packages are out of date. But
they AREN'T out of date for lenny. SO, is this a Debian Lenny issue, of not
updating to Exim 4.71, or an rkhunter issue for telling my that even though I
can't update to this version, I should beware?
