New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 2.4


The remote web server is affected by a script injection vulnerability.


The version of Webmin installed on the remote host is older than 1.330. It is, therefore, affected by multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in chooser.cgi. These flaws allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted filename. Note that Nessus has relied on the self-reported version of the sofware from either the index page or the Server header.


Upgrade to Webmin version 1.330 or later.
