vulnerabilities and a log file injection.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause Mailman to
stop processing mails, to inject content into the log file or to
execute arbitrary scripts running in the context of the administrator
or mailing list user's browser.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Mailman users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-mail/mailman-2.1.9_rc1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
