3. Problem description:

The mailman package is software to help manage email discussion lists.

A flaw in the true_path function of Mailman was discovered. A remote attacker who is a member of a private mailman list could use a carefully crafted URL and gain access to arbitrary files on the server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0202 to this issue.

Note: Mailman installations running on Apache 2.0-based servers are not vulnerable to this issue.

Users of mailman should update to these erratum packages that contain a patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:
