Debian DLA-1272-1 : mailman security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106696

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

The mailman package has a Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in
the web UI before 2.1.26 which allows remote attackers to inject
arbitrary web script or HTML via a user-options URL

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version
1:2.1.15-1+deb7u3

We recommend that you upgrade your mailman packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description
block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted
to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without
introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected mailman package.
