Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-09-08 11:07:12 EDT
Multiple security flaws leading to cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks (execute arbitrary HTML or scripting code) were found in mailman.

1. A security flaw was found in the way Mailman mailing list
manager sanitized content of mailing list information HTML
template, prior rendering it to the user. A remote mailing
list owner could use this flaw to conduct cross-site scripting
(XSS) attacks (execute arbitrary HTML or scripting code)
when the modified "listinfo" html page is viewed by the user.

2. A security flaw was found in the way Mailman mailing list
manager sanitized mailing list description by presenting
general mailing list information. A remote mailing list
owner could use this flaw to conduct cross-site scripting
(XSS) attacks (execute arbitrary HTML or scripting code).
