Debian: New webmin packages fix remote session ID spoofing

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. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.

Package        : webmin
Vulnerability  : session ID spoofing
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0101

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.
