  4. Prevent users to be able to remove files from file manager

    Add the possibility to prevent/block any file or directory removal from within the File Manager in Plesk by the subscription/domain users.

    An example that could be applied is the same as it can be applied already for ProFTP config files as follows:

    <Directory /var/www/vhosts/*/.cagefs>
    <Limit ALL>
    DenyAll
    </Limit>
    </Directory>

    <Directory /var/www/vhosts/*/.cl.selector>
    <Limit ALL>
    DenyAll
    </Limit>
    </Directory>

    <Directory /var/www/vhosts/*/error_docs>
    <Limit DELE>
    DenyAll
    </Limit>
    </Directory>

    <Directory /var/www/vhosts/*/httpdocs>
    <Limit RMD>
    DenyAll
    </Limit>
    </Directory>

    <Directory /var/www/vhosts//httpdocs/>
    <Limit RMD>
    AllowAll
    </Limit>
    </Directory>

  5. Email notifications/alerts for Modsecurity (WAF)

    It will be great to have the ability to receive an email notification from Modsecurity (WAF) when protection has been breached with corresponding breach information (SQL injection, Command injection, Cross-site scripting, etc.).

  7. Enable Mail DKIM signing by default

    I suggest to add an option to Plesk Service Plans to enable DKIM signing when creating a new hosting package.

    Right now we have to manually enable DKIM signing for every new hosting account after creation.

    This should be inside a Service Plan under tab: Mail

  9. Make PLESK compatible with "Microsoft Security Essential" for Windows servers

    Microsoft Security Essential is a free and powerful security software for windows server. I recommend make PLESK compatible with this software to have a powerful and simple security solution.

  11. Separate mozilla tls cipher settings for web and mail

    Please separate the mozilla tls cipher settings for web and mail.
    Sometimes the old ciphers has to set only for mail and not for web.
    Additionally it would be great if the setting could available on domain basis.

    Please see this forum post as a reference: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/tls-versions-and-ciphers-by-mozilla-issue-with-the-last-synchronisation.358066/post-882924

  12. check passwords against Pwned Passwords API

    Plesk should check user typed passwords against Pwned Passwords API

    https://haveibeenpwned.com/API/v2

    that way you could further improve systems running Plesk against Brute-Force attacks - and Dictionary attacks

    WordFence plugin for WordPress is already offering this, checking WordPress administrator passwords against https://haveibeenpwned.com/API/v2

    it shouldn't be too much work to compare Plesk password hash between Plesk and https://haveibeenpwned.com/API/

    I would like to use this feature for all services (FTP, E-Mail, Plesk, WordPress, etc.)

    It makes a lot of sense to do this, there are no drawbacks
    it should be option that users can enable/disable
    if you don't need it, you can disable…

  13. fail2ban - Add Details (Login Name)

    Often large Companies with lot's of Workstation are getting blocked because 1 Client in their Office is trying to log in with wrong Password (imap/pop/smtp) - then the whole Office of them is getting blocked and the search which PC/which User is causing the block.starts ...
    It would help big times if one got a reference which Login Name / Username caused the block as additional Info next to the IP ...
    Won't help on Brute Force Attacks where the Username changes ... but on this Scenario it would be a big Timesaver ...

  15. Don't show version on the login mask.

    I recommend to don't show any information about the version of Plesk or other software before the user logged in.

    You wouldn’t need to worry too much on version exposure:
    1) should there be any vulnerability discovered, we will fix it for each and every supported version. Just stay up2date
    2) hiding version gives only false sense of security – attacker can still apply all known vulnerabilities disregarding your actual version. There were just few vulnerabilities about Plesk and it is easy to run them all (though it won’t give an impact as all of them are addressed already). It is even easier than capturing a version from a file.

    If you remain heavily concerned, we can recommend applying Two-Factor authentication via Clef or Google Auth extensions at http://ext.plesk.com or maybe restricting Plesk control panel access to certain IPs only and only enter it via VPN. The last option is the least convenient and the most secure.

  16. 2FA/TOTP for additional admin accounts.

    Plesk supports Authenticators for the primary admin account.

    However, additional admin accounts can still log in without 2FA.

    This feature would be great to abide to basic security guidelines as it still involves important client data.

  17. More advanced anti-ddos interface and settings

    This (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000784914-What-DDoS-protection-tools-are-available-in-Plesk) recently updated article shows that we still need paid extensions to better protect our servers against ddos attacks.

    It would be great if Plesk would create a more advanced anti-ddos monitoring tool with a useful interface, alerts, and the right amount of settings to better protect our servers from ddos attacks without the need to install a third party extension with additional costs. Preferably created with "good defaults" in mind.

  18. Block user access after failed attempts

    It would be great to implement in Plesk a new feature.

    When there are X failed attempts, in Plesk there should be the possibility to block automatically the access to the customer account (completely or for a certain period of time).

    As per now, Plesk block the IP address via Fail2ban, but this is not the feature that we need. We just want to block the access completely or temporarily for the affected login.

  19. Add the possibility to protect Plesk panel with Web Application Firewall (ModSecurity)

    Plesk should provide a way to secure the Plesk administration panel with the Web Application Firewall (ModSecurity).

    Currently, when Plesk is accessed via 8443, Apache is not handling any request. However, when Plesk is accessed via port 443, Nginx is working as a proxy.

    This setup should be changed, Apache should work as a proxy to be able to filter the HTTP request with ModSecurity, adding an additional security layer.

  20. Allow adding additional users to a subscription with granular selection of which domain/subdomains he can manage.

    Allow adding additional users to a subscription with granular selection of which domain/subdomains he can manage.

    So that if subscription example.com contains 1.example.com 2.example.com 3example.com.
    We can select as an example only the subdomain 1 and 3

    Same for other components like databases.
