Package        : mlmmj
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2009-4896

Florian Streibelt reported a a directory traversal flaw in the way the
Mailing List Managing Made Joyful mailing list manager processed
users' requests originating from the administrator web interface
without enough input validation. A remote, authenticated attacker could
use these flaws to write and / or delete arbitrary files.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.15-1.1+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.17-1.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mlmmj package.
