webmin - session ID spoofing



Debian Security Advisory

DSA-319-1 webmin -- session ID spoofing

Date Reported:
12 Jun 2003
Affected Packages:
webmin
Vulnerable:
Yes
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CAN-2003-0101.
More information:

miniserv.pl in the webmin package does not properly handle metacharacters, such as line feeds and carriage returns, in Base64-encoded strings used in Basic authentication. This vulnerability allows remote attackers to spoof a session ID, and thereby gain root privileges.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.94-7woody1.

The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a webmin package.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem is fixed in version 1.070-1.

We recommend that you update your webmin package.

Fixed in:

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (woody)
