USN78-2 : mailman vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
mailman vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote package "mailman" is missing a security patch.

Description :

Ubuntu Security Announce USN-78-1 described a path traversal
vulnerability in the "private" module of Mailman. Unfortunately this
updated mailman package was broken so that the "private" module could
not be executed at all any more. The latest package version fixes
this.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

For reference, this is the description of the original USN:

An path traversal vulnerability has been discovered in the "private"
module of Mailman. A flawed path sanitation algorithm permited the
construction of URLS to arbitrary files readable by Mailman. This
permited a remote attacker to retrieve configuration and password
databases, private list archives, and other files.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- mailman-2.1.5-1ubuntu2.4 (Ubuntu 4.10)



Network Security Threat Level: High
