Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:222: mailman

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mailman package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:222 (mailman).



Scrubber.py in Mailman 2.1.4 - 2.1.6 does not properly handle UTF8 character
encodings in filenames of e-mail attachments, which permits remote attackers to
cause a denial of service. (CVE-2005-3573) In addition, these versions of
mailman have an issue where the server will fail with an Overflow on bad date
data in a processed message. The version of mailman in Corporate Server 2.1
does not contain the above vulnerable code. Updated packages are patched to
correct these issues.
