Cpanel Demo.. Easy hack or secure enough?

    I stopped using the demo option in cpanel over a year ago because I heard it was an easy target for hackers to get into a box.

    Has the security on the cp demo been improved? Or does it remain an easy hack?

    Thanks

    we had two security problems... one major... i dont know about these days, but when we used the demo feature it was a problem... i would suggest you post screen shots, an explination, and tell customers they can demo the product on request.

    Not to be a plug, but this was one of the reasons we start cpaneldemos.com so you would not have to worry about the security stuff.
