Package        : mailman
Version        : 1:2.1.23-1+deb9u8
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-43331 CVE-2021-43332 CVE-2021-44227
Debian Bug     : 1000367 1001685

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Mailman, a web-based
mailing list manager. An attacker could impersonate more privileged
accounts through different vectors.

CVE-2021-43331

    A crafted URL to the Cgi/options.py user options page can execute
    arbitrary JavaScript for XSS. (Closes: #1000367)

CVE-2021-43332

    The CSRF token for the Cgi/admindb.py admindb page contains an
    encrypted version of the list admin password. This could
    potentially be cracked by a moderator via an offline brute-force
    attack.

CVE-2021-44227

    A list member or moderator can get a CSRF token and craft an admin
    request (using that token) to set a new admin password or make
    other changes.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version
1:2.1.23-1+deb9u8.

We recommend that you upgrade your mailman packages.
