Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56158
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-242-1 (mailman)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-242-1 (mailman)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to mailman
announced via advisory USN-242-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected: mailman

Details follow:

Aliet Santiesteban Sifontes discovered a remote Denial of Service
vulnerability in the attachment handler. An email with an attachment
whose filename contained invalid UTF-8 characters caused mailman to
crash. (CVE-2005-3573)

Mailman did not sufficiently verify the validity of email dates. Very
large numbers in dates caused mailman to crash. (CVE-2005-4153)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.1.5-1ubuntu2.5 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 2.1.5-7ubuntu0.1 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 2.1.5-8ubuntu2.1 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
