    Yup. Somebody hacked the repo and lots of servers have been vulnerable for over year.
    Looks like It's the Sourcforge repo that was spreading the backdoored Webmin.
    Here is a handy command to remote reinstall webmin:
    ssh -t [email protected] "apt install --reinstall webmin -y"
    or you if you have a network of servers then try this script:
    # Remote install Script
    for ((i=1;i<=254;i++)); do \
    ssh -t [email protected].$i "apt install --reinstall webmin -y"; \
