DESCRIPTION
 Mailman[1] is a mailing list manager.
 
 "office" reported[3] several cross site scripting vulnerabilities in
 Mailman versions 2.0.11 and older. The authors have been notified and
 released[2] version 2.0.12 shortly thereafter to address these
 issues.
 
 Using these vulnerabilities a remote attacker could obtain sensitive
 information, such as authentication cookies or even the
 administrative password of a specific mailing list, by crafting a
 special URL with javascript in it and somehow having a list
 administrator click on it.
 
 This announcement updates mailman to version 2.0.13.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all mailman administratores upgrade their
 packages.
