    Debian Bug     : 341394 381537 391284
    Several vulnerabilities have been identified in webmin, a web-based
    administration toolkit.
    	A format string vulnerability in 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.
    	Improper input sanitization in could allow an
    	attacker to read arbitrary files on the webmin host by providing
    	a specially crafted URL path to the miniserv http server.
    	Improper handling of null characters in URLs in
    	could allow an attacker to conduct cross-site scripting attacks,
    	read CGI program source code, list local directories, and
    	potentially execute arbirary code.
    For the stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.180-3sarge1
    Webmin is not included in unstable (sid) or testing (etch), so these
    problems are not present.
    We recommend that you upgrade your webmin (1.180-3sarge1) package.
    Upgrade instructions
    - --------------------
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
    Debian 3.1 (stable)
    - -------------------
    Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
    Source archives:
        Size/MD5 checksum:      703 5e723deaccb3db60794e0cb385666992
        Size/MD5 checksum:  2261496 ff19d5500955302455e517cb2942c9d0
        Size/MD5 checksum:    31458 f8fe363e7ccd8fe4072d84cd86a3510e
    Architecture independent packages:
        Size/MD5 checksum:  1121200 8fa7064325ded44e7f8dbd226b81d9dd
        Size/MD5 checksum:  1097552 34d96210d581dde8ffea7be82e0897f4
      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
