Yes. Why would they need anything more than a broken SMTP engine that
has been ripped from one sample to another for over 8 years?

I'm exaggerating of course, but you get the picture.

Let's not go back to blocking port 25 again, but that's the only reason
why this would become obsolete so that other methods/attack vectors are
actually necessary.
