Mandrake: Updated mailman packages fix  24 January 2005 
Florian Weimer discovered a vulnerability in Mailman, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks. Input is not properly sanitised by "scripts/driver" when returning error pages.

Mandrake: Updated squid packages fix  24 January 2005 
"infamous41md" discovered two vulnerabilities in the squid proxy cache server. The first is a buffer overflow in the Gopher response parser which leads to memory corruption and would usually crash squid (CAN-2005-0094). The second is an integer overflow in the receiver of WCCP (Web Cache Communication Protocol) messages. An attacker could send a specially crafted UDP datagram that would cause squid to crash (CAN-2005-0095).
