I discovered DirectSlave 3.2 have a bunch of security breaches in webinterface (XSS) since it have no filtration
of data coming through web channel (I completely rely on user's sanity). And I really aplogise for that.

Extract directslave/www/templates/login.tpl from archive into /usr/local/directslave/www/templates/ and overwrite login.tpl with archive version.
