Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA319] DSA-319-1 webmin

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-319-1 webmin

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

miniserv.pl in the webmin package does not properly handle
metacharacters, such as line feeds and carriage returns, in
Base64-encoded strings used in Basic authentication. This
vulnerability permits remote attackers to spoof a session ID, and
thereby gain root rights.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.94-7woody1.
The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a webmin package.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem is fixed in version
1.070-1.
We recommend that you update your webmin package.
