Barry Warsaw reported some cross-site scripting (XSS) issues that affect mailman
prior to 2.1.9. I've verified that at least one of these issues is real.
Whilst it's not a conventional easy to exploit XSS, a user could modify their
entry in such a way that a XSS could run when a logged-in administrator views
that users details.
