[GLSA-200406-15] Usermin: Multiple vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Usermin: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200406-15
(Usermin: Multiple vulnerabilities)


Usermin contains two security vulnerabilities. One fails to properly
sanitize email messages that contain malicious HTML or script code and the
other could permit a possible hacker to lock out a valid user by sending an
invalid username and password.

Impact

By sending a specially crafted e-mail, a possible hacker can execute arbitrary
scripts running in the context of the victim's browser. This can be lead to
cookie theft and potentially to compromise of user accounts. Furthermore,
a possible hacker could lock out legitimate users by sending invalid login
information.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to
upgrade to the latest available version.
