MDKSA-2006:061 : mailman
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21176
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionScrubber.py, in Mailman 2.1.5 and earlier, when using email 2.5 (part of Python), is susceptible to a DoS (mailman service stops delivering for the list in question) if it encounters a badly formed mime multipart message with only one part and that part has two blank lines between the first boundary and the end boundary.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected package(s).
