  1. deny access to .git folder by default

    I think it would be great if you could prevent access to .git folders that are usually left exposed by users in the server when building the vhost templates .

    It's very common that users forget to remove credentials and other sensitive information out of their repositories so by leaving the folder exposed it's possible for an attacker to gain access to this sensitive information.

    Currently we manually protect those folders when we spot them but it would be nice if this was implemented from the start.

    For example in nginx the following rule could be used.

    location ~ /.git…

  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. remove kernelcare suggestion on openvz vservers!

    If a servers runs on a openvz environment there is no need for kernelcare as it shares the kernel with the host.

    Therefor your suggestion including your offer to sell a license at 5$+VAT vs 3.95$ at the cloudlinuxes website this very misleading!

  10. Set right ciphers by default on Windows

    There is a documentation how to do it manually: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/onyx/administrator-guide/plesk-administration/securing-plesk/pci-dss-compliance/tune-plesk-to-meet-pci-dss-on-windows.78901/

    but there is no tool to do it automatically (and by default during the installation).

    AFAIU, the request is about right ciphers for SSL configuration. We have a documentation how to do it manually: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/onyx/administrator-guide/plesk-administration/securing-plesk/pci-dss-compliance/tune-plesk-to-meet-pci-dss-on-windows.78901/ but have no tool to do it automatically, so, this is a valid request, we’ll look into it.

    There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features. Thanks in advance!

  13. 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.

  14. OWASP security recommendation hide php version from web server by default

    I've noticed that in a default plesk installation the web server is configured to disclose php version. This could be exploited especially with a lot of websites running insecure php versions still.

    I think it's not much trouble to implement this simple "security through obscurity" step to not disclose this information and help attackers detect vulnerabilities in PHP itself.

  15. Add exceptions to automatic 301 redirects to https

    Automatic renewal of Let's encrypt certificates does not work when automatic redirects to https are enabled.

    It seems that Let's encrypt needs do excess the .well-known directory over http and fails if it receives a 301 redirect. It would be helpfull if the redirect could be specifically disabled for certain directories.

  16. 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.

  17. Let's encrypt wildcard for domain aliases

    Currently, when requesting a wildcard certificate for a domain with multiple domain aliases, only the main domain gets a wildcard.

    Let say you have a main domain domain.com and have 3 subdomains domain.fr, domain.co.jp and domain.eu.

    When requesting a wildcard certificate including all aliases, you'll get :

    domain.com
    *.domain.com
    domain.fr
    domain.co.jp
    domain.eu

    where it would be more logical and usefull to have :

    domain.com
    .domain.com
    domain.fr
    .domain.fr
    domain.co.jp
    .domain.co.jp
    domain.eu
    .domain.eu

  19. Bind poppasd service to localhost only

    Currently poppassd listens on all IPs. Due to that an intruder can connect to the service via 106.
    Please implement binding of poppassd to localhost only.

  20. Let pci_compliance_resolver --enable postfix also set FORWARD SECURITY and go dor TLSv1.3

    Even though server supports TLS 1.2, the cipher suite configuration is suboptimal. It is recommend to configure the server so that the cipher suites providing forward secrecy (ECDHE or DHE in the name, in this order of preference) and authenticated encryption (GCM or CHACHA20 in the name) are at the top. The server must also be configured to select the best-available suite!

    also there is TLSv3 https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8446
    (and draft is used already a long time by many;)

    http://www.postfix.org/TLS_README.html

    And while Playing on Mailserver think about MTA Strict Transport Security (Draft standard) and Email DANE / TLSA.
