Package        : mailman
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0991 CAN-2003-0965 CAN-2003-0038

Several vulnerabilities have been fixed in the mailman package:

 - CAN-2003-0038 - potential cross-site scripting via certain CGI
   parameters (not known to be exploitable in this version)

 - CAN-2003-0965 - cross-site scripting in the administrative
   interface

 - CAN-2003-0991 - certain malformed email commands could cause the
   mailman process to crash

The cross-site scripting vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to perform administrative operations without authorization, by stealing a session cookie.

For the current stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.11-1woody7.

For the unstable distribution (sid), CAN-2003-0965 is fixed in version 2.1.4-1, and CAN-2003-0038 in version 2.1.1-1.  CAN-2003-0991 will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your mailman package.
