_______________________________________________________________________

Package : webmin
Date : July 18, 2006
Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 3.0

Problem Description:

Webmin before 1.290 and Usermin before 1.220 calls the simplify_path
function before decoding HTML, which allows remote attackers to read
arbitrary files. NOTE: This is a different issue than CVE-2006-3274.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
