    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.

    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.
