The mailinglist software "majordomo" was found having several local vulnerabilties. However, the licence of the program prohibites us providing a fix! :-(

You should either remove majordomo or trust your local users until an official fix from greatcircles is available (which we will distribute for SuSE customers too then of course).

Sorry guys, thats all we can do at the moment.

(that problem affects all other linux and bsd distributions as well ...)
