    Package        : smartlist
    Vulnerability  : wrong input processing
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0157
    
    Jeroen van Wolffelaar noticed that the confirm add-on of SmartList,
    the listmanager used on lists.debian.org, which is used on that host
    as well, could be tricked to subscribe arbitrary addresses to the
    lists.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.15-5.woody.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.15-18.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your smartlist package.
