MDKA-2006:051: webmin Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the webmin package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2006:051 (webmin).
Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix.
For the Mandriva 2007.0 release, the webmin package received a patch to
the operating system detection code to cope with the Mandriva name
change. This patch unfortunately introduced a problem where many webmin
modules would no longer work, like cron, MySQL and many others.
This issue is fixed with this update.
