    Package        : mailman
    Vulnerability  : cross-site scripting, directory traversal
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1177 CAN-2005-0202
    Due to an error the last mailman update was slightly broken and had to
    be corrected.  This advisory only updates the packages updated with
    DSA 674-1.  For completeness below is the original advisory text:
      Two security related problems have been discovered in mailman,
      web-based GNU mailing list manager.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
      Exposures project identifies the following problems:
          Florian Weimer discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability in
          mailman's automatically generated error messages.  An attacker
          could craft an URL containing JavaScript (or other content
          embedded into HTML) which triggered a mailman error page that
          would include the malicious code verbatim.
          Several listmasters have noticed unauthorised access to archives
          of private lists and the list configuration itself, including the
          users passwords.  Administrators are advised to check the
          webserver logfiles for requests that contain "/...../" and the
          path to the archives or cofiguration.  This does only seem to
          affect installations running on web servers that do not strip
          slashes, such as Apache 1.3.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.0.11-1woody10.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.1.5-6.
    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.
