The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated mailman package that closes a DoS vulnerability in mailman
introduced by RHSA-2004:019 is now available.
Mailman is a mailing list manager.
On February 19 2004, Red Hat issued security erratum RHSA-2004:019 to
correct a DoS (Denial of Service) vulnerability where an attacker
could send a carefully-crafted message and cause mailman to crash.
Matthew Saltzman discovered a flaw in our original patch intended to
correct this vulnerability. This flaw can cause mailman to crash if it
receives an email destined for a list with an empty subject field. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2004-0182 to this issue.
Users of Mailman are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which include an updated patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.
