Mailman is software to help manage email discussion lists.

A flaw in handling of UTF8 character encodings was found in Mailman. An
attacker could send a carefully crafted email message to a mailing list run
by Mailman which would cause that particular mailing list to stop working.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name
CVE-2005-3573 to this issue.

An attacker could send a carefully crafted email message to a mailing list
run by Mailman which would cause the Mailman server to crash. (CVE-2005-4153).

Users of Mailman should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches to correct these issues.
