- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 781626.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2015-2775.
- More information:
A path traversal vulnerability was discovered in Mailman, the mailing list manager. Installations using a transport script (such as postfix-to-mailman.py) to interface with their MTA instead of static aliases were vulnerable to a path traversal attack. To successfully exploit this, an attacker needs write access on the local file system.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1:2.1.15-1+deb7u1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1:2.1.18-2.
We recommend that you upgrade your mailman packages.
