  1. Add WAF module StackPath

    Like done with CloudFlare and Sucuri a WAF module for StackPath's WAF would be great. So, one will be able to see the real IP - just like with CloudFlare and Sucuri

  3. Authenticated Origin Pulls / SSLVerifyClient require

    I'm new customer, and previous tenant has domains pointing to my IP.
    My server is being hammered, tried blocking malicious traffic many different ways already, but need to enable Apache option SSLVerifyClient require.

    It means, the webserver will only accept connections from cloudflare, and nobody else. Quite common for people to bypass cloudflare, and hack into the origin server directly.

    If you let me edit the server.apache file, I would put the following:

    SSLCertificateFile "/applications/xxx/privatehtml/cert2020.crt"
    SSLCertificateKeyFile "/applications/xxx/private
    html/cert2020.key"
    SSLCACertificateFile "/applications/xxx/private_html/server-ca.crt"
    SSLVerifyClient require

    Authenticated Origin Pulls
    Authenticated Origin Pulls allow you to cryptographically verify that requests to your origin server…

  4. Slow HTTP DoS (Denial of Service) Attack

    Your all web servers are vulnerable to Slow HTTP DoS (Denial of Service) attacks.

    Slowloris and Slow HTTP POST DoS attacks rely on the fact that the HTTP protocol, by design, requires requests to be completely received by the server before they are processed. If an HTTP request is not complete, or if the transfer rate is very low, the server keeps its resources busy waiting for the rest of the data. If the server keeps too many resources busy, this creates a denial of service.

    Attack Details:
    Time difference between connections: 10006 ms

    The impact of this vulnerability:
    A…

  5. Remove Server Signature for Improved Security

    Provide a way to disable the server signature to improve security by not disclosing the server type and server software, along with other information, which could allow hackers to determine vulnerabilities by listing server and software specifications.

    Thanks!

  6. Check for the blacklist IP before assigning Server IP

    Hello Team,

    Can you please add some feature where it'll check for the blacklist before assigning server IP?

    It seems like someone else was using assigned server IP before it's assigning to the user and they have abused the server so their IP is under blacklist and that blacklist server IP is not going to be useful for the new user.

  10. whitelist

    Please add Remark Option with Whitelist IP address in Server Security Section. Right now its difficult to find out which IP is pointing to external important server and which is IP is added for temporary use. Deleting an IP by mistake can take us into trouble as some live App IP's are listed in Whitelist IP list.

  11. SSH keys should accept eliptic curves - not only RSA

    SSH keys should accept eliptic curves - not only RSA
    RSA is old, using too big big length.
    I would like to see possibility to use standard eliptic curves that are used everywhere. For some reason this is still not possible on Cloudways.

  14. provide a way for site-administrators to view the auth.log

    When sites are hacked the first thing to check is the auth.log to see who accessed what, when. When a compromise happens we need to be able to investigate immediately and find a fix.
    Can site owners be provided with a way to see the auth.log for their site, similar to how we can currently view web access/error logs?

    Specifically what I'm requesting is live (and perhaps filtered to my site) visibility on:
    * auth.log
    * sftpserver.log
    * history of auth and sftp
    server logs so that we can go back at least a week to see if we…

  15. Allow closing shellinabox

    The shellinabox service that runs on port 4200 is not secure enough, for a number of reasons:
    * it accepts non-TLS traffic
    * no multifactor authentication
    * no battle-tested frontend webserver like nginx before it

    Instead of fixing all of these, perhaps just allow to disable this service like you allow for other services.

  18. Integrate firewall with CDN

    There are probably many needed enhancements to the firewall. One that would be especially helpful would be to block traffic that doesn't originate through the CDN.

    For example, with Cloudflare, hackers can sometimes use historical dns records to discover your server's origin IP address. They can then circumvent Cloudflare's ddos and firewall features.

    An option in the Cloudways firewall to only accept traffic through the CDN would eliminate this whole class of vulnerabilities.

  20. Integrate mod_evasive to mitigate DDoS attacks

    DDoS issues are getting out of control. It would be a good idea to integrate mod_evasive apache module to mitigate them.

    I was suggested by the support team to mitigate the attack using app level firewalls but that's far to be an optimal solution.

    They confirmed that the current infrastructure of their servers is not ready for adding this apache module but they are open to evaluating it as an option.
