Synopsis
=======
Webmin and Usermin are vulnerable to cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities (XSS).

Background
=========
Webmin is a web-based administrative interface for Unix-like systems.
Usermin is a simplified version of Webmin designed for use by normal
users rather than system administrators.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package            /  Vulnerable  /                    Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-admin/webmin        < 1.350                          >= 1.350
  2  app-admin/usermin       < 1.280                          >= 1.280
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     2 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
==========
The pam_login.cgi file does not properly sanitize user input before
sending it back as output to the user.

Impact
=====
An unauthenticated attacker could entice a user to browse a specially
crafted URL, allowing for the execution of script code in the context
of the user's browser and for the theft of browser credentials. This
may permit the attacker to login to Webmin or Usermin with the user's
permissions.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All Webmin users should update to the latest stable version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --verbose --oneshot ">=app-admin/webmin-1.350"

All Usermin users should update to the latest stable version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --verbose --oneshot ">=app-admin/usermin-1.280"
