webmin issue, poss security issue

I installed and ran webmin for about a week, then when I tried to open the page from a browser, regardless of what port I open and regardless of uninstall and re-install it keeps bringing me to a webpage w/ mario and luigi. Have I been hacked ?

That doesn't sound good. Check /etc/hosts for unusual entries and maybe change webmins port to 10001 or something and see if it still happens.

Have a look at /etc/hosts
By default this should have two lines, with localhost and your host name.
