    ===========================================================
    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-78-2 February 17, 2005
    mailman vulnerabilities
    CAN-2005-0202
    ===========================================================

    A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

    Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

    The following packages are affected:

    mailman

    The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
    version 2.1.5-1ubuntu2.4. In general, a standard system upgrade is
    sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

    Details follow:

    Ubuntu Security Announce USN-78-1 described a path traversal
    vulnerability in the "private" module of Mailman. Unfortunately this
    updated mailman package was broken so that the "private" module could
    not be executed at all any more. The latest package version fixes
    this.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    For reference, this is the description of the original USN:

      An path traversal vulnerability has been discovered in the "private"
      module of Mailman. A flawed path sanitation algorithm allowed the
      construction of URLS to arbitrary files readable by Mailman. This
      allowed a remote attacker to retrieve configuration and password
      databases, private list archives, and other files.
