Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Two denial of service bugs were found in the mailman list server. In

parsed, which could cause the server to crash. In another, a message
containing a bad date string could cause a server crash.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not vulnerable to this issue.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.5-8sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.5-10.
