Initial Comment:
more a observed comment but may have other implications    
   
recently i was running bit defender antivirus on my pc    
and found it reported    
   
/usr/lib/mailman/tests/msgs/nimda.txt=>(IFRAME)  infected:   
Trojan.Exploit.Html.Iframe.Filedownload.AW <-   
cevakrnl.xmd   
   
from what i can gather the file is one used for testing    
(not shure if the actual exploit code needs to be there for   
that though)   
   
but it raises an issue    
   
in that because of the file being included in the distributed   
code it may cause some distributions from including the   
whole package in there distributions    
and may also possibaly in some cercumstances lead to 
legal action   
as it may be construded that this trojan code is being  
distributed   
   
just feel that  this should be pointed out to you  
  
Dave

The file never contained any trojan code. It is safe to look at 
it and if you do, you'll see that it is mostly MIME headers and 
a few bits of innocuous content.

As of Mailman 2.1.6, the file is no longer in the distribution.
