1. A user who is subscribed to any list on the ListManager system may

modify client side information sent to the server related to their

account, effectively elevating their privileges to list administrator.


2. A user who is subscribed to any list may gain access to arbitrary

mailing lists by modifying client side information sent to the server.

Accessing a preexisting mailing list on the ListManager system causes

the active user to be added as a member or administrator to that list.

collision will result in overwriting data in the original account

with the data from the new account.
