    our security scanner shows err for cPanel WebDisk:

    [SIZE=1]Web Server Uses Basic Authentication Without HTTPS	The remote web server seems to transmit credentials in clear text.	"The remote web server contains web pages that are protected by 'Basic'
    authentication over plain text.
    An attacker eavesdropping the traffic might obtain logins and passwords
    of valid users."	Make sure that HTTP authentication is transmitted over HTTPS.		"
    The following web pages use Basic Authentication over an unencrypted
    channel :
    /:/  realm=""cPanel WebDisk""
    We tried to force ssl for all serivces (Tweak Settings > Redirection > Always redirect to SSL), but this seems not working for WebDisk.

    Do you guys know any other solution to mitigate this problem?
