    Within the file manager, there is a real possibility someone could "accidentally" delete a large number of site files if not careful.

    If you attempt to compress files within your site, and change the name of the yet-to-be outputted compressed file, striking the delete key will prompt the user if they want to delete all of the files they are trying to compress. If a user is careless and simply hits enter, a lot of data loss could occur.

    This could likely be solved by simply stopping key stroke events from propagating outside of the the popup window.

    We are currently using cPanel & WHM build 11.28 for linux

    Steps to reproduce:

    Open file manager from cPanel.
    Select a number of files within a site.
    Choose "Compress" from icon menu at top.
    Change the name for the to-be-outputted file by using the delete key to remove the pre-filled name
    View the dialog box that is shown prompting to confirm file deletion.

    I spoke with our UI team lead, and he believes this should be filed as a bug. See Tristan's post for how to submit a file report.

    I am moving this out of the Feature Request forums now.
