Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:165: 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-2006:165 (mailman).

A flaw was discovered in how Mailman handles MIME multipart messages
where a possible hacker could send a carefully-crafted MIME multipart
message to a Mailman-run mailing list causing that mailing list to
stop working (CVE-2006-2941).
As well, a number of XSS (cross-site scripting) issues were discovered
that could be exploited to perform XSS attacks against the Mailman
administrator (CVE-2006-3636).
Finally, a CRLF injection vulnerability permits remote attackers to
spoof messages in the error log (CVE-2006-4624).
Updated packages have been patched to address these issues.
