Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:059: webmin

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the webmin package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:059 (webmin).


Recently, Caldera found that when webmin starts a system daemon from the web
frontend it does not clear its environment variables. Since these variables
contain the authorization of the administrator, any daemon would also get these
variables.
