EulerOS 2.0 SP5 : mailman (EulerOS-SA-2020-2256)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 142117


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the mailman package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- /options/mailman in GNU Mailman before 2.1.31 allows Arbitrary Content Injection.(CVE-2020-12108)

- GNU Mailman 2.x before 2.1.30 uses the .obj extension for scrubbed application/octet-stream MIME parts. This behavior may contribute to XSS attacks against list-archive visitors, because an HTTP reply from an archive web server may lack a MIME type, and a web browser may perform MIME sniffing, conclude that the MIME type should have been text/html, and execute JavaScript code.(CVE-2020-12137)

- GNU Mailman before 2.1.33 allows arbitrary content injection via the Cgi/ private archive login page.(CVE-2020-15011)

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


Update the affected mailman packages.
