The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
An path traversal vulnerability has been discovered in the 'private'
module of Mailman. A flawed path sanitation algorithm allowed the

allowed a remote attacker to retrieve configuration and password
databases, private list archives, and other files.
Update the affected mailman package.
