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

Security or Ease of Use, pick one.
