DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Webmin, which can be
exploited by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system and by
malicious people to disclose certain sensitive information.

1) Input passed via monitor type name is not properly sanitised in
edit_mon.cgi and save_mon.cgi. This can be exploited to inject and
execute arbitrary Perl code.

2) Input passed via the path info to show.cgi is not properly
sanitised before being used in a "open()" function call. This can be
exploited to inject and execute arbitrary shell commands.

3) Input passed via the "file" parameter to edit_html.cgi is not
properly verified before being used to read files. This can be
exploited to read arbitrary files from local resources.

The vulnerabilities are reported in version 1.580. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Fixed in the GIT repository.
