  1. Created Scheduled Tasks (Cron jobs) via Plesk GUI should be registered in the action log

    At the moment the created Scheduled Tasks (Cron jobs) via Plesk GUI are not registered in the action log.

    Also, according to /var/log/messages and /var/log/cron it is not clear what task was created, the name of the task and it is also difficult to understand was the cron task created or not.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  9. 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.

  11. Make default Plesk Firewall rules more strict

    Right now "System policy for outgoing traffic" rule is set to allow all outgoing traffic as default which is not secure enough.

    Please consider to make default firewall rules for outgoing traffic more secure and allow only Plesk services to send outgoing packets

  13. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. 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.
