Description Mark J. Cox 2006-08-23 10:07:00 UTC
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.
