attacker could send a carefully crafted MIME multipart email message to a
mailing list run by Mailman which would cause that particular mailing list
to stop working. (CVE-2006-0052)

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

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
