CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Mailman, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and phishing attacks, and cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

1) An error in the logging functionality can be exploited to inject a spoofed log message into the error log via a specially crafted URL containing newline characters.

Successful exploitation may trick an administrator into visiting a malicious web site.

2) An error in the processing of malformed headers which does not follow the RFC 2231 standard can be exploited to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

3) Some input isn't properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

Examples:
http://[host]/mailman/admin/mailman/members?findmember=[code]
http://[host]/mailman/edithtml/tests/listinfo.html?html_code=[code]

The vulnerabilities have been reported in versions 2.1.0 through 2.1.8. Prior versions may also be affected.

A format string error has also been reported.


Solution:
Update to version 2.1.9.
