THIS ISSUE HAS NOW BEEN RESOLVED

One of the storage servers in our shared mail cluster is having performance problems. This is resulting it delays in downloading mail via POP and IMAP for approximately 1/2 of the mailboxes. At this stage our providers suspect a failed disk is the problem. They are investigating further and we'll update this announcement when we have more information.

RSS Subscribe Proactive Malware Detection Software Installed on Premium Cpanel Plans
Posted on 16/12/11 12:48PM

We have introduced a new malware detection system for all of our Premium Cpanel servers, named Maldetect. It is an anti-malware project that has proved to be an effective solution against the use of virii/malware on servers. We have initiated full scans on the servers and have detected some malware files on current user accounts. We have incorporated the maldetect software to check apache (web) and ftp uploads. During the uploading of files to the servers, either via ftp or apache (web), maldetect software will scan the file(s) and it will not allow the upload if a file has a signature matching a virus/malware.
