Bug Description

List of Directory that are no good in current implant of Zpanel on Servers


Other possible Security issues

# Must be owned by root with 4777 permissions, or zsudo will not work!
cc -o /etc/zpanel/panel/bin/zsudo /etc/zpanel/configs/bin/zsudo.c
sudo chown root /etc/zpanel/panel/bin/zsudo
chmod +s /etc/zpanel/panel/bin/zsudo

Over writing certian files like apache2.conf is not a good idea there needs to be a better implementation for this and all files that are being altered.

There is no ssl so anyone can see what you are typing when if you are prone too a man in the middle attack.


All of this information was gathered by looking at the Community based installer scripts
So there is nothing that can be done besides make a better debian package
