Package        : mailman
Vulnerability  : format string
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2006-3636 CVE-2006-4624

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.
