Joking - right?
1. Why are you using password based authentication on ssh - these 
machines must be on an isolated network and not accessible from the 
internet otherwise the script kiddies will target you and compromise 
your systems.
2. use webmin if you really need web based admin tools - but even here 
it pays to block the webmin port  (usually 10000) via your firewall and 
use VPN or ssh tunnelling to gain access.
3. use private/public keys for ssh authentication - once set up, much 
more secure and easier to operate.
