RHSA-2005-136: mailman

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mailman packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated mailman packages that correct a mailman security issue are now
available.

The mailman package is software to help manage email discussion lists.

A flaw in the true_path function of Mailman was discovered. A remote
attacker who is a member of a private mailman list could use a carefully
crafted URL and gain access to arbitrary files on the server. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2005-0202 to this issue.

Note: Mailman installations running on Apache 2.0-based servers are not
vulnerable to this issue.

Users of mailman should update to these erratum packages that contain a
patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.
