Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:170
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : webmin
Date : September 22, 2006
Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Webmin before 1.296 and Usermin before 1.226 does not properly handle a
URL with a null ("%00") character, which allows remote attackers to
conduct cross-site scripting (XSS), read CGI program source code, list
directories, and possibly execute programs.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
