The best way to secure webmin is to uninstall it :)

It is inherently an insecure application... Now some measures can be 
taken to make it LESS insecure (i.e. block access from all IPs except 
your own, remove any modules you don't actually use, don't install it on 
any servers that hold or have direct access to sensitive data, etc).  
But the consensus among security-conscious administrators is, you 
shouldn't use it.

Security or Ease of Use, pick one.
