Webmin Security Hole
« on: November 29, 2006, 11:44:30 AM »
There is a new exploit out for the Webmin Control Panel :whip: :whip: :whip:.  This is serious exploit that allows the hacker full access to your server and the password files.  Itís imperative that you upgrade the version of Webmin on your server and change your password immediately.

We have already begun upgrading Webmin for our customers that are managed.   If you are not managed or would prefer to upgrade it on your own we have a tutorial up at http://www.lunarforums.com/forum/index.php?topic=36716.msg274449#msg274449

If you have any questions or comments do not hesitate to contact us at dedicated@lunarpages.com

I think someone's trying to hack my site.
This morning, I saw one of my image (paw prints) being changed to  " :shades: "
i uploaded the image (paw print) back. and then few minutes ago, I noticed that the image is not loading again. I checked my FTP then it went back to normal. I loggin to my cpanel and found this IP last loggin to my cpanel! << this is NOT mine.

is this related to lunarpages? because if so, I put it on my ban list.

help please. i already made a back up for today.

Hello pinoypetfinder,

I would highly recommend to change all your server passwords and upgrade control panel as well as server software to the latest versions after this incident occurred.
Kind Regards,
Vlad Artamonov
