The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
A flaw was found in Mailman. A remote attacker could spoof messages in
the error log, and possibly trick the administrator into visiting
malicious URLs via a carriage return/line feed sequence in the URI.
As well, these updated packages fix the following bugs :
- canceling a subscription on the confirm subscription
request page caused mailman to crash.
- editing the sender filter caused all spam filter rules
to be deleted.
- the migrate-fhs script was not included.
- the mailman init script returned a zero (success) exit
code even when an incorrect command was given. For
example, the 'mailman foo' command returned a zero exit
code. In these updated packages the mailmain init script
returns the correct exit codes.
