Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2006:051 (webmin).

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix.
For the Mandriva 2007.0 release, the webmin package received a patch to
the operating system detection code to cope with the Mandriva name
change. This patch unfortunately introduced a problem where many webmin
modules would no longer work, like cron, MySQL and many others.
This issue is fixed with this update.
