    Several security related problems have been discovered in mailman, the
    web-based GNU mailing list manager.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
        Moritz Naumann discovered several cross-site scripting problems
        that could allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script
        or HTML.
        Moritz Naumann discovered that a remote attacker can inject
        arbitrary strings into the logfile.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1.5-8sarge5.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1.8-3.
    We recommend that you upgrade your mailman package.
