cPanel Upgrade!

We’ve upgraded cPanel and WHM to the latest version, 11.34.  A full changelog can be found on cPanel’s website found here: http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/AllDocumentation/1134ReleaseNotes

You will notice some large changes to the server’s backend. The most important changes are outlined below:
Security Improvements:
Security Tokens: Security Tokens are designed to protect cPanel & WHM from a common type of web vulnerability called XSRF. Once enabled, unique tokens will be included in the cPanel & WHM URLs which will completely prevent XSRF attacks.
SMTP Restrictions: This feature prevents users from bypassing the mail server to send mail, a common practice used by spammers. It will allow only the MTA, mailman, and root to connect to remote SMTP servers.
Secure Connections: All cPanel/WHM connections are now 100% secured via SSL. This ensures your data is secure.
Feature Improvements:
 
Email Archiving: Email Archiving allows you to store a copy of each message this server sends or receives. This feature provides a cPanel interface that allows users to control the archive type and retention period on a per domain basis.

cPanel/WHM Security Enhancement

Clients,

We’re excited to inform you of a new security protocol that effects all cPanel/WHM users. Prior to yesterday, all cpanel users generally chose an unsecure port (2082, 2086, 2095, etc) to manage their websites, webmail, and reseller account. A collective decsison was made between the owner of Stream101 and the Operations Supervisor that now secures all cPanel related traffic. We’ve installed SSL certificates on all of our Hosting servers.

What do I have to do? Nothing!
Nothing that you do will change as all traffic will now automatically be routed over the secure pathway.  You will notice the Lock in the corner of your browser indicating that you are now secure.

As our streaming customers may recall, with our last upgrade to the streaming service control panel, we have also made that area secure. It is just another step that we are taking to ensure your security and privacy are the highest priority!

Have a great & safe 4th of July Holiday!

Stream101 Staff
