RHSA-2004-156: mailman

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mailman packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated mailman package that closes a DoS vulnerability in mailman
introduced by RHSA-2004:019 is now available.

Mailman is a mailing list manager.

On February 19 2004, Red Hat issued security erratum RHSA-2004:019 to
correct a DoS (Denial of Service) vulnerability where a possible hacker could
send a carefully-crafted message and cause mailman to crash.

Matthew Saltzman discovered a flaw in our original patch intended to
correct this vulnerability. This flaw can cause mailman to crash if it
receives an email destined for a list with an empty subject field. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2004-0182 to this issue.

Users of Mailman are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
include an updated patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.
