Webmin / Usermin Arbitrary File Disclosure Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to read a local file using miniserv.pl
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server is affected by an information disclosure flaw.
The remote host is running Webmin or Usermin, web-based interfaces for
Unix / Linux system administrators and end-users.
Webmin and Usermin both come with the Perl script 'miniserv.pl' to
provide basic web services, and the version of 'miniserv.pl' installed
on the remote host contains a logic flaw that allows an
unauthenticated attacker to read arbitrary files on the affected host,
subject to the rights of the web server user id.
