Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Mailman. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can send e-mail containing a specially crafted MIME multipart message to cause the target mail list to stop working [CVE-2006-2941].

A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser [CVE-2006-3636]. The code will originate from the site running the Mailman software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user. Moritz Naumann discovered this vulnerability.
