Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2005:223
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : webmin
Date : December 2, 2005
Affected: 10.1, 10.2, 2006.0, Corporate 2.1, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Jack Louis discovered a format string vulnerability in miniserv.pl
Perl web server in Webmin before 1.250 and Usermin before 1.180,
with syslog logging enabled. This can allow remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (crash or memory consumption) and possibly execute
arbitrary code via format string specifiers in the username parameter
to the login form, which is ultimately used in a syslog call.
