Two denial of service bugs were found in the mailman list server. In one, attachment filenames containing UTF8 strings were not properly parsed, which could cause the server to crash. In another, a message containing a bad date string could cause a server crash.

Vulnerability  : DoS
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Two denial of service bugs were found in the mailman list server. In
one, attachment filenames containing UTF8 strings were not properly
parsed, which could cause the server to crash. In another, a message
containing a bad date string could cause a server crash.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not vulnerable to this issue.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.5-8sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.5-10.

We recommend that you upgrade your mailman package immediately.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

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.
