Description

This update of mailman fixes the following security issues :

  • A malicious user could visit a specially crafted URI and inject an apparent log message into Mailman's error log which might induce an unsuspecting administrator to visit a phishing site. This has been blocked. Thanks to Moritz Naumann for its discovery.

  • Fixed denial of service attack which can be caused by some standards-breaking RFC 2231 formatted headers. CVE-2006-2941.

  • Several cross-site scripting issues have been fixed. Thanks to Moritz Naumann for their discovery. CVE-2006-3636: - Fixed an unexploitable format string vulnerability. Discovery and fix by Karl Chen. Analysis of non-exploitability by Martin 'Joey' Schulze. Also thanks go to Lionel Elie Mamane. CVE-2006-2191.
