Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2006-0600: mailman

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mailman packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated mailman packages that fix security issues are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

Mailman is a program used to help manage email discussion lists.

A flaw was found in the way Mailman handled MIME multipart messages. An
attacker could send a carefully crafted MIME multipart email message to a
mailing list run by Mailman which caused that particular mailing list
to stop working. (CVE-2006-2941)

Several cross-site scripting (XSS) issues were found in Mailman. An
attacker could exploit these issues to perform cross-site scripting attacks
against the Mailman administrator. (CVE-2006-3636)

Red Hat would like to thank Barry Warsaw for disclosing these
vulnerabilities.

Users of Mailman should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct this issue.
