Description of problem:
sendmail-8.13.1-2 appears to be compiled with libwrap.so.0 due to the command

sendmail's port 25

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

2. restart sendmail service
3. connect from another machine to port 25

connects every time

Expected results:
connection should be refused

sendmail rejects the mail after issuing the MAIL command, there is no need to
reject the whole connection. And it's not a tcp_wrappers bug neither.

Can you confirm that it's ok so that I can close the report?

No reply for more than a month, closing. Feel free to reopen if you still
