3. Problem description:

Mailman is software to help manage email discussion lists.

A flaw was found in the way Mailman handles MIME multipart messages. An
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.

4. Solution:

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

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
