tag_insight = "Several vulnerabilities have been fixed in the mailman package:

- CVE-2003-0038 - potential cross-site scripting via certain CGI
parameters (not known to be exploitable in this version)

- CVE-2003-0965 - cross-site scripting in the administrative
interface

- CVE-2003-0991 - certain malformed email commands could cause the
mailman process to crash

The cross-site scripting vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to
perform administrative operations without authorization, by stealing a
session cookie.

In the process of fixing these vulnerabilities for DSA 436-1, a bug
was introduced which could cause mailman to crash on certain malformed
messages.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 2.0.11-1woody8.

The update for the unstable distribution did not share the bug
introduced in DSA 436-1.

We recommend that you update your mailman package.";
