Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : webmin (MDKSA-2001:059)
High Nessus Plugin ID 13875
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionRecently, 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected webmin package.
