CLA-2002:522-mailman

by Nikola Strahija on September 4th, 2002 Mailman[1] is a mailing list manager. "office" reported[3] several cross site scripting vulnerabilities in Mailman versions 2.0.11 and older. The authors have been notified and released[2] version 2.0.12 shortly thereafter to address these issues.


Using these vulnerabilities a remote attacker could obtain sensitive
information, such as authentication cookies or even the
administrative password of a specific mailing list, by crafting a
special URL with javascript in it and somehow having a list
administrator click on it.

This announcement updates mailman to version 2.0.13.


SOLUTION
It is recommended that all mailman administratores upgrade their
packages.
