MDKSA-2005:223: 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-2005:223 (webmin).



Jack Louis discovered a format string vulnerability in miniserv.pl Perl web
server in Webmin before 1.250 and Usermin before 1.180, with syslog logging
enabled. This can permit remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash or
memory consumption) and possibly execute arbitrary code via format string
specifiers in the username parameter to the login form, which is ultimately
used in a syslog call.
