Delete it. Seriously, that is by far the best way to secure Sendmail.

After you've done that, install either Postfix or Qmail and be happy knowing both are quite secure. The Postfix RPM may even have instructions for using it to replace Sendmail, since Postfix is designed to accept input just like Sendmail (so it works great as a replacement).
