Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:061
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : mailman
Date : March 29, 2006
Affected: 10.2, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Scrubber.py, in Mailman 2.1.5 and earlier, when using email 2.5 (part
of Python), is susceptible to a DoS (mailman service stops delivering
for the list in question) if it encounters a badly formed mime
multipart message with only one part and that part has two blank lines
between the first boundary and the end boundary.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
