this is a message from the maintainer ...
I haven't seen this one before - but it would be blocked by Webmin's
password timeouts feature. However, this feature (surprisingly!) isn't
enabled by default ...
On behalf of the maintainer I appreciate every input to secure the
software to its extend. Future versions of Webmin (if needed Usermin
too) will have this feature enabled by default.
With this we encourage everyone using Webmin to enable this feature to
avoid a possible break-in.
Again, we would like to tell the OP of this that it would be really nice
to know first about such issues, so we are ablte to / can do a
(full-)disclosure on items.
bis dahin/kind regards
