It's worth noting that most people who run `rwhod' use it only for
``tourist information'' anyway and do not actually depend on the
information it provides. I run it on my servers so that the nightly
reports will include the summary of uptimes and load averages, but if
one daemon goes AWOL I'll not be particularly concerned.
If, on the other hand, this bug is actually exploitable, that would be
much more serious (and would warrant a reissue of the advisory).
