GLSA-200707-05 : Webmin, Usermin: XSS vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25680
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200707-05 (Webmin, Usermin: XSS vulnerabilities)
The pam_login.cgi file does not properly sanitize user input before sending it back as output to the user.
An unauthenticated attacker could entice a user to browse a specially crafted URL, allowing for the execution of script code in the context of the user's browser and for the theft of browser credentials. This may permit the attacker to login to Webmin or Usermin with the user's permissions.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Webmin users should update to the latest stable version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --verbose --oneshot '>=app-admin/webmin-1.350' All Usermin users should update to the latest stable version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --verbose --oneshot '>=app-admin/usermin-1.280'
