MDKA-2006:051 : webmin

High Nessus Plugin ID 24526


The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related patches.


Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix.

For the Mandriva 2007.0 release, the webmin package received a patch to the operating system detection code to cope with the Mandriva name change. This patch unfortunately introduced a problem where many webmin modules would no longer work, like cron, MySQL and many others.

This issue is fixed with this update.


Update the affected package(s).
