GLSA-200406-12 : Webmin: Multiple vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 14523
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200406-12 (Webmin: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Webmin contains two security vulnerabilities. One allows any user to view the configuration of any module and the other could allow an attacker to lock out a valid user by sending an invalid username and password.
An authenticated user could use these vulnerabilities to view the configuration of any module thus potentially obtaining important knowledge about configuration settings. Furthermore, an attacker could lock out legitimate users by sending invalid login information.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Webmin users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
# emerge sync # emerge -pv '>=app-admin/app-admin/webmin-1.150' # emerge '>=app-admin/app-admin/webmin-1.150'
