    Is there a reason that the following URL is only accesible over the insecure HTTP, instead of HTTPS?

    Downloads | cPanel, Inc.

    This is even going against your own warnings with WHM that:

    We recommend that the URL support SSL in order to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks and ensure the downloaded configuration is legitimate.

    Hello,

    This is documented at:

    Download Security - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Here's a quote from this document that explains how the security works:

    Regarding the validation of GPG keys, these keys are downloaded from Secure Downloads | cPanel, Inc. during the nightly upcp using the system's wget binary.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    The vendor rules offered directly from cPanel should already exist under in "WHM Home » Security Center » ModSecurity™ Vendors » Manage Vendors". Regarding the availability of the new OWASP rules, this is fixed in cPanel version 64:

    OWASP ModSecurity Core Rule Set v3

    Thank you.
