  1. Add the option to forbid execution of files in Plesk for Windows

    In Plesk for Windows, add options to forbid executing .exe, .bat and other executable files in order to prevent starting of malicious scripts.
    It should be added to domain and server-wide levels.

  2. 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…

  3. Deny access to all dot files by default

    A lot of web applications that are either built or simply installed on a website use dot files and folders, whether those be .htaccess, .git, .env, etc.

    Generally speaking dot files and folders are used to store either sensitive files or backend configuration which you would never want users to be able to access.

    By default Apache has some protection built-in to restrict accessing dot files, but Nginx does not. This creates a potential security risk, for example I might install a web application or build one which has dot files in the public root, these most likely would be…

  4. add permission to disable "certificate selection"

    Add permission to disable "for certificate selection"

    Use case: if "hosting management" permission is disabled in Subscription > Customize > Permissions > Hosting management - uncheck, an additional Plesk user still able to select SSL certificate in "hosting settings" of domain. User can set certificate to none and thus violate website security.

    Add option in Permissions to forbid certificate selection by user to prevent such cases.

  5. 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 ...

  6. ProFTPd with ClamAV support (mod_clamav)

    Compile ProFTPd daemon with mod_clamav support, that FTP uploaded files can be scanned with malware.

    cPanel & DirectAdmin support this:

    https://github.com/jbenden/mod_clamav

    and External Signatures with ClamAV:

  8. 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.

  9. support algorithm 16 (ed448) in DNSSEC

    Recognising the increasing challenges in these times, would welcome the implementation of the Edwards-curve Digital Signature Algorithm (EdDSA) type ed448 for security and to keep ahead of the curve (sic.) on the cryptographic front...

    interesting tool here too for those interested in checking out where they're up to with browser support (and to know the differences between the different algorithms): https://ed448.no/

  10. Apply SELinux policy for custom vhosts directory

    Currently Plesk has predefined SELinux policies for default location of vhosts directory (/var/www/vhosts). If virtual hosts directory changed to custom one, it is needed to disable SELinux (set to permissive), for correct websites working capacity. It would be great to change transvhosts.pl script that policies for /var/www/vhosts will applies to custom vhost directory.

  11. 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.

  12. Allowing customers to whitelist IP address's from their control panel.

    Giving the customer the option to whitelist any IP address from their control panel.

    At the moment, if a customer wants to whitelist an IP address they cannot without server admin whitelisting the IP across the server.

    cPanel have this option with Mod Security Manager.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Enable SSH Key Generate via Plesk Control Panel

    With the SSH Manager inside Plesk Onyx, it is extremely easy to add a new key to a subscription. The problem is, most users don't understand how to generate a key with tools like PuTTYgen and explaining it to them leaves them very confused. It would be very handy if, inside the SSH manager there was a way to request a new key pair be generated and added to a subscription automatically, so users don't have to go through the hassle of generating a key.

  16. SEO 301-Forwarding HTTP to HTTPS for webmail.x.x too

    Same as for websites www.x.x, but for webmail adresses webmail.x.x
    It's security relevant, because http://webmail.x.x ist still default.

  18. Add option to Whitelist IP in Fail2Ban and mod_security

    I always need to whitelist IPs in Firewall, Fail2Ban and mod_security.

    u could add at least an option to also whitelist fail2ban in mod_security or even make two checkboxes in Firewall whitelisting to whitelist ip in all three modules.

    also usage of dns instead of ip would be greate for example PayPal does recomment to whitelist dns for api!

  19. Filter POST and PUT requests, but keep GET available

    It is needed to block PUT and POST requests from specific country, but keep GET available. For example, I do not want China to send POST and PUT to my server, but they are free to send GET in order to receive website's content.
