    Debian Bug     : 341394 381537 391284
    
    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.
    
    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

    dpkg -i file.deb

    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
    
    Debian 3.1 (stable)
