1. A user who is subscribed to any list on the ListManager system may
modify client side information sent to the server related to their 
account, effectively elevating their privileges to list administrator. 
2. A user who is subscribed to any list may gain access to arbitrary 
mailing lists by modifying client side information sent to the server. 
Accessing a preexisting mailing list on the ListManager system causes 
the active user to be added as a member or administrator to that list.
3. Once administrative access is granted, a vulnerability in the
ListManager administrative interface allows an attacker

collision will result in overwriting data in the original account 
with the data from the new account.
