I downloaded the Mailman 2.1.2 tarball yesterday, and ran into an issue
with a virus scan. McAfee commandline virus scan found
Exploit-MIME.gen, a generic MIME format "virus" that exploits the
"Microsoft Incorrect MIME Header vulnerability". I downloaded the
source tarball yesterday, and the virus scanner hit on it after a
crontab job ran uvscan. Below is the output when I scanned the suspect
[root at emit_server msgs]# uvscan
Found the Exploit-MIME.gen virus !!!
Is this an issue? Is this the right forum for this question?
I would like to install mailman as our company's mailing list manager,
but would like to understand this better.
