Just configured a new server, the first one without CSF/CXS, instead I just installed Imunify360 only. And I am "missing" a few things I would like to share.
I missed the security check up in CSF [Check Server Security option], I know there is Security Advisor in cPanel but it's missing a lot of stuff.
Do you plan something like that (or help cPanel on their own Security Advisor?)
[Check IPs in RBLs], nice feature, most of the times we have problems with outgoing spam so we check it regularly. If it was automated and just reporting in the frontpage / or with popup notification it would be great! (Or maybe integrate it on reputation management)
Allow incoming/outgoing tcp/udp ports. How can I port block something or even worse, block it for everyone except x,y,z IPs/subnets. I use it for MySQL connections mostly. Nice feature. I block everything for port 3306 for example except a few subnets and/or IPs. Doing the same for SSH. Can I do that with imunify ?
Email Alerting. On port scans, floods, connlimit, etc, is there a way to get email alerts too ? Or program them to send alert if only something is true (e.g Send me alert of blocked IP then the country is Greece to double check it)
Better reporting in incidents. (More verbose maybe)
CXS/CSF sends me alerts when it block something (mod_security for example) and I am getting something like that:

So I know the rule, the hostname the rule, the data and the exact file location.
In imunify I'm seeing only the file location. I don't know which account, username or domain it came from.
I am just seeing something like that:
Atomicorp.com WAF Rules: xmlrpc DOS attack
Or in newer beta:
i360-wallarm - web-shell access (WLRM-18fd997a)||domain-here.gr
But still no the exact URL.
(Or what that "web shell acess" means exactly)
Outgoing emails spam,
That's a pain, and somewhere here there is a un-answered question about that,
there are reporting tools about relaying, queue alerts, smtp alerts etc.
Generally, outgoing spam from php backdoors, shells, or hacked accounts is an issue. Do you plan alerts or hardening this ?
ps: Just updated to cPanel 66, frameless whm, even the beta imunify doesn't work well. No scrollbar. But I like it anyway.
