Hackers compromised accounts belonging to maintainers of the open-source ZPanel after a team member supporting the Web hosting control panel called a critic a "****en little know it all." The ZPanel site went completely down after the incident and remained down at time of writing.

I heart about this, and am also wondering how the zPanel management team are going to react to this. While I'm not keeping up to date with this (as I don't use zPanel), it would be interesting to know.
zpanel is always a quick, easy panel to throw up on a server but it has some issues for sure and I never trusted the security of it in general. The thing I hate most about zpanel and ispconfig is the long ass paths to the users web files as well as the ownership methods.
Agreed about it being insecure which is why I never use it =/ unfortunately I'd rather just use SSH to configure everything by hand which is a pain but still more secure when I'm working on my own projects!
When you work on your own projects SSH and vi are all you need, but as you increase the domain density on a server, and have multiple groups on the same server a control panel makes sense, otherwise you will eventually encounter "quality" issues.

Well, this is just great news. Actually downloaded and gave the panel a test today for the first time, possibly not business worthy yet after reading this. Will wait, assurance doesn't feel there. Free Software!
