A new RCE vulnerability has been discovered by security research company Qualys and it is said to impact over half of the Internet's email servers. While RCE is usually understood as Remote Code Execution, here, it stands for Remote Command Execution and as its nature implies, the new vulnerability enables a local or remote attacker to run commands on the Exim server as admin. Exim is a Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) software, which runs on email servers to pass on emails from senders to recipients. As noted by ZDNet, a survey conducted in June 2019 reports that Exim is used by about 57 percent of all email servers and the security report by Qualys mentions that the flaw affects Exim installations running versions 4.87 to 4.91.
