mailman logfile CRLF injection

Text taken from MITRE:
CRLF injection vulnerability in Utils.py in Mailman before 2.1.9rc1
allows remote attackers to spoof messages in the error log and
possibly trick the administrator into visiting malicious URLs via a
carriage return/line feed sequences in the URI.

The fix for this issue is here:
Comment 1 David Eisenstein 2006-10-07 11:02:29 EDT
Bug #206607 also lists these two additional CVE's:  CVE-2006-3636 CVE-2006-2941.
The solution for FC6Test3 was to upgrade to mailman 2.1.9.  Any plans to do
likewise for this bug as well?

Those issues bring the current FC5 mailman to a security impact of "moderate,"
I believe?
Comment 2 Tomas Smetana 2007-05-03 09:13:46 EDT
The version 2.1.9 is available in FC-5 updates.
