FreeBSD : mailman -- hardening against malicious listowners injecting evil HTML scripts (739948e3-78bf-11e8-b23c-080027ac955c)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 110691


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Mark Sapiro reports :

Existing protections against malicious listowners injecting evil scripts into listinfo pages have had a few more checks added.

A few more error messages have had their values HTML escaped.

The hash generated when SUBSCRIBE_FORM_SECRET is set could have been the same as one generated at the same time for a different list and IP address.


Update the affected packages.
