    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.
