Debian: New webmin packages fix multiple vulnerabilities

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in webmin. An unknown vulnerability in Webmin 1.140 allows remote attackers to bypass access control rules and gain read access to configuration information for a module. Additionally, the account lockout functionality in (1) Webmin 1.140 and (2) Usermin 1.070 does not parse certain character strings, which allows remote attackers to conduct a brute force attack to guess user IDs and passwords. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.
