I informed the mailman developers about the problem more than a year
ago and the number of vulnerable lists only increased:

If they don't spread the word someone else has to do it. I'm not
worried about the 60,000 email addresses. They asked for being this
example by being public. Let's hope this will make list admins
secure the addresses which are only available to subscribers (which
are a lot more).
