[Mailman-Users] What does "Possible malformed path attack" actually mean?

today I updated our installation of Mailman to version 2.1.23. Prior to the 
upgrade there were "Possible malformed path attack" log entries, but 
without any further details I never bothered to look for their cause. After 
the update I can now see where they are coming from, and it's our own 
Google Search Appliance (GSA).

So far I haven't been able to understand what is going on. I can't find any 
questionable requests in Apache's access log from the GSA. Any ideas what 
could be causing this?
