Vulnerability Assessment Details
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
Several vulnerabilities have been identified in webmin, a web-based
administration toolkit. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following vulnerabilities:
A format string vulnerability in miniserv.pl could permit an
attacker to cause a denial of service by crashing the
application or exhausting system resources, and could
potentially permit arbitrary code execution.
Improper input sanitization in miniserv.pl could permit an
attacker to read arbitrary files on the webmin host by providing
a specially crafted URL path to the miniserv http server.
Improper handling of null characters in URLs in miniserv.pl
could permit a possible hacker to conduct cross-site scripting attacks,
read CGI program source code, list local directories, and
potentially execute arbitrary code.
Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64,
m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
For the stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in
Webmin is not included in unstable (sid) or testing (etch), so these
problems are not present.
We recommend that you upgrade your webmin (1.180-3sarge1) package.
