    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-2775
    Debian Bug     : 781626
    
    A path traversal vulnerability was discovered in Mailman, the mailing
    list manager. Installations using a transport script (such as
    postfix-to-mailman.py) to interface with their MTA instead of static
    aliases were vulnerable to a path traversal attack. To successfully
    exploit this, an attacker needs write access on the local file system.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:2.1.15-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:2.1.18-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mailman packages.
