    Package        : mailman
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0991 CAN-2003-0965 CAN-2003-0038
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been fixed in the mailman package:
    
     - CAN-2003-0038 - potential cross-site scripting via certain CGI
       parameters (not known to be exploitable in this version)
    
     - CAN-2003-0965 - cross-site scripting in the administrative
       interface
    
     - CAN-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.
    
    Upgrade Instructions
