        We have serious doubts this function can really increase server security:
        1) Plesk has built-in protection against brute-force on login – it will lock the login form. So no one can try multiple attempts
        2) Arbitrary login name adds very little guess-complexity to a proper password. If you have concerns for your login brute-forced – add another 5-7 characters into your password and feel safe.

          This can also be extended to when the domain is switched from the FastCGI PHP module to the Apache module, where the tool would chown the domain's web document root to apache:apache.
