Ubuntu Security Notice USN-78-2		  February 17, 2005
mailman vulnerabilities

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:


The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.1.5-1ubuntu2.4.  In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Ubuntu Security Announce USN-78-1 described a path traversal
vulnerability in the "private" module of Mailman. Unfortunately this
updated mailman package was broken so that the "private" module could
not be executed at all any more. The latest package version fixes

We apologize for the inconvenience.

For reference, this is the description of the original USN:

  An path traversal vulnerability has been discovered in the "private"
  module of Mailman. A flawed path sanitation algorithm allowed the
  construction of URLS to arbitrary files readable by Mailman. This
  allowed a remote attacker to retrieve configuration and password
  databases, private list archives, and other files.
