(Red Hat Issues Fix) Mailman Input Validation Error in 'scripts/driver' Lets Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1013496
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1013496
CVE Reference:   CVE-2004-1177   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Mar 28 2005
Original Entry Date:  Mar 21 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.15 and prior versions
Description:   An input validation vulnerability was reported in Mailman when processing error messages. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The 'scripts/driver' code does not properly escape the <>& characters from environment variables when printing an error message. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL (designed to trigger a Mailman error) that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. 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.

Florian Weimer reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Mailman software, 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.
Solution:   Red Hat has released a fix.

3. Problem description:

Mailman manages electronic mail discussion and e-newsletter lists. 

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw in the driver script of mailman prior to
version 2.1.5 could allow remote attackers to execute scripts as other web
users. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CAN-2004-1177 to this issue.

Users of mailman should update to this erratum package, which corrects this
issue by turning on STEALTH_MODE by default and using Utils.websafe() to
quote the html.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date
