Description

A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in the admin CGI script for Mailman before 2.1.4. This update moves Mailman to version 2.1.4 which is not vulnerable to this issue.

Updated packages were made available in February 2004 however the original update notification email did not make it to fedora-announce-list at that time.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
