Package        : mailman
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0052
Debian Bug     : 358892

A potential denial of service problem has been discovered in mailman,
the web-based GNU mailing list manager.  The (failing) parsing of
messages with malformed mime multiparts sometimes caused the whole
mailing list to become inoperative.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.5-8sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your mailman package.

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.
