    Which are considered safe/stable and relatively secure vs downright evil?

    Fantastico Deluxe, as of today offers these scripts seen below ... according to mine anyways.

    In light of the time and expense involved in managing a cpanel server, I have recently heard from 2 popular cpanel server admin firms that several scripts should be banned altogether. Is it feasible to require customers to immediately stop using them?

    Which to stop installing altogether?

    Well, just looking at your list, I would say you are outdated and therefore none of them are safe to offer.
    As an example, Invision Board was removed from Fantastico some time ago, once the board entered the 2.x build and became a commercial product. If you have it in your lists, you are seriously outdated and therefore highly susceptable to exploits.
    A suggestion would be to remove support for phpBB, as it seems to come up with a lot of bugs... and while the developer is often quick to release a patch, netenberg is slower on putting the update into their distribution, and your customers will likely be even slower yet on updating.

    Nothing can be considered completely safe and there will always be security holes and bugs in scripts nomatter what.

    As long as you keep Fantastico and all of the installations updated on a regular basis, you should not have any problems.
