Hi Javier,

Thanks for reporting this - I hadn't considered this attack
vector, as I didn't realize that chfn could be used to modify a user's
real name.

I have created a fix which you can see at :


Also an update for the Users and Groups module can be found at 
http://www.webmin.com/updates.html , and will be available from within
the Webmin UI.

In what Webmin-release this will be fixed? Do you have CVE-identifier for this yet?

Best regards,
Henri Salo
