Thanks to Andre > Protas, Richard Cloke and Andy Nuttall of Apple for reporting these and > helping with the development of a fix. > > CVE-2021-42096 could allow a list member to discover the list admin > password. > > CVE-2021-42097 could allow a list member to create a successful CSRF > attack against another list member enabling takeover of the members account. > > These attacks can't be carried out by non-members so may not be of > concern for sites with only trusted list members. > I am pleased to announce the release of Mailman 2.1.35. > > This is a security and minor bug fix release.

For those who just want a patch for the security > issues, see > https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mailman-coders/mailman/2.1/revision/1873. > The patch is also attached to the bug reports at > https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/1947639 and > https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/1947640. The patch is the same > on both and fixes both issues. > > As noted Mailman 2.1.30 was the last feature release of the Mailman 2.1 > branch from the GNU Mailman project.
