Mandriva: Updated mailman packages fix DoS from badly formed mime multipart messages. Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake 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.
