A client of ours with 72K subscribers recently became the victim when one of
the subscribers decides to email the list owner address which sent out 72K
emails to everyone on the list. I know this is a feature of Mailman, but
never once in the past 6 months of using Mailman has this ever happened

I did not setup the lists for this particular client, but I'm reviewing the
administration area and do not see any settings turned on so that the
individual could have blasted out the email by emailing the list owner. I
don't think it's security hole as this guy only sent out his email in the
body and his email provider attached signatures related to dating services.
He could have been a lot more malicious than that. I may have looked over
some setting. Any have a list of settings to check to make sure only one
email address has the authority to blast out?
