Solution

Solution

For the stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in version 1.180-3sarge1 Webmin is not included in unstable (sid) or testing (etch), so these problems are not present. We recommend that you upgrade your webmin (1.180-3sarge1) package. https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=DSA%201199-1
