MDKSA-2006:170-1: 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 MDKSA-2006:170-1 (webmin).
Webmin before 1.296 and Usermin before 1.226 does not properly handle a
URL with a null ('%00') character, which allows remote attackers to
conduct cross-site scripting (XSS), read CGI program source code, list
directories, and possibly execute programs.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Packages are now available for Mandriva Linux 2007.
