Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA955] DSA-955-1 mailman

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-955-1 mailman

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Two denial of service bugs were found in the mailman list server. In
one, attachment filenames containing UTF8 strings were not properly
parsed, which could cause the server to crash. In another, a message
containing a bad date string could cause a server crash.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not vulnerable to this issue.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.5-8sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.5-10.
We recommend that you upgrade your mailman package immediately.
