Description

Certain versions of Webmin are vulnerable to a cross site scripting vulnerability in the login page.

Cross Site Scripting vulnerabilities are client-based attacks that rely on vulnerable CGI programs. A CGI program that does not adequately filter its dynamic output allows a malicious user to abuse another user's trust in your web server by injecting script tags.

An exploit script can be made to:

  • access other sites inside another client's private intranet.
  • steal another client's cookie(s).
  • modify another client's cookie(s).
  • steal another client's submitted form data.
  • modify another client's submitted form data (before it reaches the server).

Note that SSL connectivity does not protect against this issue.

Solution(s)

  • webmin-upgrade-0_970
  • webmin-upgrade-latest
