Description

The remote host is missing an update to webmin announced via advisory DSA 1199-1.

Several vulnerabilities have been identified in webmin, a web-based administration toolkit.

CVE-2005-3912 A format string vulnerability in miniserv.pl could allow an attacker to cause a denial of service by crashing the application or exhausting system resources, and could potentially allow arbitrary code execution.

CVE-2006-3392 Improper input sanitization in miniserv.pl could allow an attacker to read arbitrary files on the webmin host by providing a specially crafted URL path to the miniserv http server.

CVE-2006-4542 Improper handling of null characters in URLs in miniserv.pl could allow an attacker to conduct cross-site scripting attacks, read CGI program source code, list local directories, and potentially execute arbirary code.
