mailman-2.1.9-5.3 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
I'm giving this issue an impact of low. List administrators already have a
access to a set of rather sensitive data, if they cannot be trusted there are
other more serious problems that arise.
It should also be noted that this problem likely cannot be fixed. The current
patch focuses on blacklisting various dangerous things, but there are always new
ways to circumvent these protections. The only true solution is to whitelist tags.
This issue affect the versions of the mailman package, as shipped
with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.
This issue has been addressed in following products:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
