    Package        : mailman
    Vulnerability  : cross-site scripting
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2002-0388
    
    A cross-site scripting vulnerability was discovered in mailman, a
    software to manage electronic mailing lists.  When a properly crafted
    URL is accessed with Internet Explorer (other browsers don't seem to
    be affected), the resulting webpage is rendered similar to the real
    one, but the javascript component is executed as well, which could be
    used by an attacker to get access to sensitive information.  The new
    version for Debian 2.2 also includes backports of security related
    patches from mailman 2.0.11.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 2.0.11-1woody2 for the current
    stable distribution (woody), in version 1.1-10.1 for the old stable
    distribution (woody) and in version 2.0.12-1 for the unstable
    distribution (sid).
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mailman package.
    
    wget url
    	will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
