Probably, but as it only is used as mail-server with postfix, and
is firewalled so only open port from the internet is port 25.

Then all users read mail localy on other machines that have NFS mounted it
or over imap (not from the internet)

And there is no login for ordinary users on it, and hardly any
suid-binarys left.
