|Title:||Debian LTS: Security Advisory for mailman (DLA-2200-1)|
|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'mailman'; package(s) announced via the DLA-2200-1 advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'mailman'
package(s) announced via the DLA-2200-1 advisory.
A vulnerability was discovered in mailman. GNU Mailman 2.x before 2.1.30
uses the .obj extension for scrubbed application/octet-stream MIME
parts. This behavior may contribute to XSS attacks against
list-archive visitors, because an HTTP reply from an archive web
server may lack a MIME type, and a web browser may perform MIME
sniffing, conclude that the MIME type should have been text/html, and
'mailman' package(s) on Debian Linux.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version
We recommend that you upgrade your mailman packages.
