Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-019: mailman

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mailman packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated mailman packages that close a DoS vulnerability present in mailman
versions prior to version 2.1 are now available.

Mailman is a mailing list manager.

Matthew Galgoci of Red Hat discovered a Denial of Service (DoS)
vulnerability in versions of Mailman prior to 2.1. A possible hacker could send
a carefully-crafted message causing mailman to crash. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2003-0991 to this issue.

Users of Mailman are advised to upgrade to the erratum packages, which
include a backported security fix and are not vulnerable to this issue.

Red Hat would like to thank Barry Warsaw for providing a patch for this
issue.
