MDKSA-2006:170-1: 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-2006:170-1 (webmin).

Webmin before 1.296 and Usermin before 1.226 does not properly handle a
URL with a null ('%00') character, which permits remote attackers to
conduct cross-site scripting (XSS), read CGI program source code, list
directories, and possibly execute programs.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update:
Packages are now available for Mandriva Linux 2007.
