Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200609-12 (Mailman: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Mailman fails to properly handle standards-breaking RFC 2231 formatted     headers. Furthermore, Moritz Naumann discovered several XSS     vulnerabilities and a log file injection.

Impact :

An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause Mailman to     stop processing mails, to inject content into the log file or to     execute arbitrary scripts running in the context of the administrator     or mailing list user's browser.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
