[SECURITY] Fedora Core 2 Update: mailman-2.1.5-10.fc2



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-241
2005-03-22
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 2
Name        : mailman
Version     : 2.1.5                      
Release     : 10.fc2                  
Summary     : Mailing list manager with built in Web access.
Description :
Mailman is software to help manage email discussion lists, much like
Majordomo and Smartmail. Unlike most similar products, Mailman gives
each mailing list a webpage, and allows users to subscribe,
unsubscribe, etc. over the Web. Even the list manager can administer
his or her list entirely from the Web. Mailman also integrates most
things people want to do with mailing lists, including archiving, mail
<-> news gateways, and so on.

Documentation can be found in: /usr/share/doc/mailman-2.1.5

When the package has finished installing, you will need to perform some
additional installation steps, these are described in:
/usr/share/doc/mailman-2.1.5/INSTALL.REDHAT

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw in the driver script of mailman
prior to version 2.1.5 could allow remote attackers to execute scripts
as other web users. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1177 to this issue.

Users of mailman should update to this erratum package, which corrects
this issue by turning on STEALTH_MODE by default and using
Utils.websafe() to quote the html.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

- fix bug in pre scriplet, last command had been "service mailman stop"
- bump rev for rebuild
  which should have been harmless if mailman was not installed except
  that it left the exit status from the script as non-zero and rpm
  aborted the install.

* Wed Jun  9 2004 John Dennis <jdennis redhat com> - 3:2.1.5-5

- add status reporting to init.d control script
  stop mailman during an installation
  restart mailman if it had been running prior to installation

- bring up to latest 2.1.5 upstream release
  From Barry Warsaw: Mailman 2.1.5, a bug fix release that also
  contains new support for the Turkish language, and a few minor new
  features. Mailman 2.1.5 is a significant upgrade which should
  improve disk i/o performance, administrative overhead for discarding
  held spams, and the behavior of bouncing member disables.  This
  version also contains a fix for an exploit that could allow 3rd
  parties to retrieve member passwords.  It is thus highly recommended
  that all existing sitesupgrade to the latest version
