    Similar to how plesk makes you pick some what secure passwords, cPanel should incorperate something similar so users can not pick the password that contains any part of their user name. Or make adjustable policies, with minimum password length, and whether or not it should contain numeric and or special characters. This would reduce the brute force attacks by 95%. I see alot of posts about brute force SSH problems.

    Anyone else agree this would be a great addition to WHM? (Password Policy Manager)

    Well, it wouldn't reduce the brute force attacks at all. It might help reduce the risk of brute force attacks working. I'd agree, though, that being able to enable a stronger password policy in WHM would be a nice idea. I'd suggest you log it appropriately in bugzilla then post the ID so people can vote for it if they agree.

    it should be an option though.
    AFAIK, Plesk forces you to choose safe passwords.
    That'd piss me off.
