New csf v2.65


  • New Feature: System Integrity Checking. This enables lfd to compare md5sums of the servers OS binary application files from the time when lfd starts.

ConfigServer cPanel Services

We’ve decided to simplify our cPanel Server Service packages to a single package (with a MailScanner option). This has been done for a one main reason – we’ve found that many people who were purchasing the smaller packages were needing the security features of the large packages and weren’t benefitting from them, frequently purchasing additional services from us to bring their servers up to the Full Service spec.To better service our customers we’ve created a single package that tackles all of the apsects of server security and management that we deal with. We’ve reduced the price of what was the cPanel Full Service package for the new all encompassing package.We have not removed any features at all whilst doing this.We hope the change benefits our customers in making their servers more secure and managable.
