DESCRIPTION:
SUSE has issued an update for mailman. This fixes a security issue,
which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose certain
sensitive information.

The security issue is caused due to the application creating private
mail messages with predictable filenames in the archives/private
directory with insecure permissions and this can be exploited to
disclose private mailing list archives.

SOLUTION:
Apply updated packages via the zypper package manager.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Reported by H. Peter Anvin in a Mailman bug report.
