Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56562
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-267-1 (mailman)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-267-1 (mailman)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to mailman
announced via advisory USN-267-1.

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

A remote Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in the decoder
for multipart messages. Certain parts of type message/delivery-status
or parts containing only two blank lines triggered an exception. An
attacker could exploit this to crash Mailman by sending a
specially crafted email to a mailing list.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.1.5-1ubuntu2.7 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 2.1.5-7ubuntu0.2 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 2.1.5-8ubuntu2.2 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
