Hello all!,


I'm getting this security warning from webmin, somthing I didn't have with older version so I'm a bit stuck on why?

Warning! Webmin has detected that the program was linked to from an unknown URL, which appears to be outside the Webmin server. This may be an attempt to trick your server into executing a dangerous command.

If your browser does not send the Referer header needed, you can turn off this check as follows :

  • Login to Webmin normally.
  • Go to the Webmin Configuration module.
  • Click on the Trusted Referrers icon.
  • Check the Trust links from unknown referrers box, and click Save.

Alternately, you can configure Webmin to allow links from unknown referers by :

  • Login as root, and edit the /etc/webmin/config file.
  • Find the line referers_none=1 and change it to referers_none=0.
  • Save the file.

The webmin configuration module gives me this error trying to fix this error...lol and so I logged in with putty and edited the config file under /etc/webmin/config and it still give the error, I rebooted just got grins and no luck, any clues?

I"m running a vbox on windows 8 x64 with a bridged adapter and accessing from the host pc.
