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:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:
