Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51699
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-78-2 (mailman)
Summary:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-78-2 (mailman)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to mailman
announced via advisory USN-78-2.

Ubuntu Security Announce USN-78-1 described a path traversal
vulnerability in the private module of Mailman. Unfortunately this
updated mailman package was broken so that the private module could
not be executed at all any more. The latest package version fixes
this.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

For reference, this is the description of the original USN:

An path traversal vulnerability has been discovered in the private
module of Mailman. A flawed path sanitation algorithm allowed the
construction of URLS to arbitrary files readable by Mailman. This
allowed a remote attacker to retrieve configuration and password
databases, private list archives, and other files.

The following packages are affected: mailman

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.1.5-1ubuntu2.4. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
