Vulnerability Scan Summary
Mailman: Multiple vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200609-12
(Mailman: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Mailman fails to properly handle standards-breaking RFC 2231 formatted
headers. Furthermore, Moritz Naumann discovered several XSS
vulnerabilities and a log file injection.
A possible hacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause Mailman to
stop processing mails, to inject content into the log file or to
execute arbitrary scripts running in the context of the administrator
or mailing list user's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Mailman users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-mail/mailman-2.1.9_rc1"
Threat Level: Medium
