Package : mailman Version : 1:2.1.18-2+deb8u3 CVE ID : CVE-2018-0618 CVE-2018-13796 Debian Bug : 903674

Two flaws were discovered in mailman, a web-based mailing list manager.


Toshitsugu Yoneyama of Mitsui Bussan Secure Directions, Inc.
discovered that mailman is prone to a cross-site scripting flaw
allowing a malicious listowner to inject scripts into the listinfo
page, due to not validated input in the host_name field.


Hammad Qureshi discovered a content spoofing vulnerability with
invalid list name messages in the web UI.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version 1:2.1.18-2+deb8u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your mailman packages.
