    Hi there,

    First of all sorry for my english, it's not my first language.

    I currently running :
    WHM 6.0.0
    Cpanel 6.0.0-S97
    RedHat 7.2

    One of our client contact us regarding his control panel access. He told us his user name was : hisdomainname.com

    I take a look to our WHM and i found that is real user name was : clientusername

    He told me is able to login into his control panel with his domain name for user ...

    I have try on few clients accounts with the domain name instead of the normal user name, and i was able to access the control panel without any problem ....

    I'm the only one who thinking that is not save ? maybe im a little bit parano ...

    Regards,

    Dany Boucher

    Not sure if it is normal, but I can also access cpanel using the domain name as you described for username access.

    Hi there,


    I'm only thinking that a malicious person will only have to guess the Password ...

    When we ask to our client thei password, they give us , very simple passwors (easy to guess) ...

    I only wonder if it possible to desactivate the domain name for user name ...

    Regards,

    Dany Boucher
