Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Mailman: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200609-12)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: September 19, 2006
Bug(s): #139976
ID: 200609-12

Synopsis


Mailman has multiple vulnerable that can result in Denial of Service, log
file injection and XSS.


Background


Mailman is a Python based mailing list server with an extensive web
interface.


Affected Packages

Package: net-mail/mailman
Vulnerable: < 2.1.9_rc1
Unaffected: >= 2.1.9_rc1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


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.


Resolution


All Mailman users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-mail/mailman-2.1.9_rc1"
