Webmin (security risk?)
 
Hi people,

Now i am currently using free Simple Panel of GoDaddy which is fine
for me and i prefer it instead of Plesk.

I want to now deinstall Simple Control Panel and install Webmin.

Will it make a security hole in my system?

Thanks for advices.

Have the service listen on the loopback, then tunnel via SSH so that the communication between your local and remote machine will be secure. Installing locally will keep the service from being exposed to the internet, but tunneling via SSH will allow only you to access it.
