===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-242-1           January 16, 2006
mailman vulnerabilities
CVE-2005-3573, CVE-2005-4153
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected:

mailman

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.1.5-1ubuntu2.5 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 2.1.5-7ubuntu0.1 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 2.1.5-8ubuntu2.1 (for Ubuntu 5.10).  In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Aliet Santiesteban Sifontes discovered a remote Denial of Service
vulnerability in the attachment handler. An email with an attachment
whose filename contained invalid UTF-8 characters caused mailman to
crash. (CVE-2005-3573)

Mailman did not sufficiently verify the validity of email dates. Very
large numbers in dates caused mailman to crash. (CVE-2005-4153)
