and discussion groups. From our new Template and Content Builder to
our Image Library and new HTML editor, ListManager is the smarter,
faster, easier way to manage all the aspects of your email marketing
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
to create new accounts that collide with existing accounts. This
collision will result in overwriting data in the original account
with the data from the new account.
Vendor has acknowledged and corrected the issue in several versions
of the product.
New versions of each major revision (8.95d, 9.2c and 9.3b), are available
at http://www.lyris.com/support/listmanager/archives.html. Affected
clients can download a new version and install it over the previous
