Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:061: 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-2006:061 (mailman).



Scrubber.py, in Mailman 2.1.5 and earlier, when using email 2.5 (part of
Python), is susceptible to a DoS (mailman service stops delivering for the list
in question) if it encounters a badly formed mime multipart message with only
one part and that part has two blank lines between the first boundary and the
end boundary. Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
