FreeBSD : mailman -- content spoofing with invalid list names in web UI (b4f0ad36-94a5-11e8-9007-080027ac955c)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 111478

Synopsis

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

Description

Mark Sapiro reports :

A URL with a very long text listname such as http://www.example.com/mailman/listinfo/This_is_a_long_string_with_som e_phishing_text will echo the text in the 'No such list' error response. This can be used to make a potential victim think the phishing text comes from a trusted site.

This issue was discovered by Hammad Qureshi.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
