Mailman is a program used to help manage email discussion lists.
A flaw was found in the way Mailman handled MIME multipart messages.
An attacker could send a carefully crafted MIME multipart email
message to a mailing list run by Mailman which caused that particular
mailing list to stop working. (CVE-2006-2941)
Several cross-site scripting (XSS) issues were found in Mailman. An
attacker could exploit these issues to perform cross-site scripting
attacks against the Mailman administrator. (CVE-2006-3636)
