Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : webmin (MDKSA-2006:125)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 23876


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.


Webmin before 1.290 and Usermin before 1.220 calls the simplify_path function before decoding HTML, which allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files. NOTE: This is a different issue than CVE-2006-3274.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected webmin package.
