New Release of MagicSpam for cPanel and WHM/cPanel PRO

Wed, 08 May 2024 09:54:07 -0700 | by mThreat Technologies Inc.

Following our latest updates for MagicSpam Plesk, mThreat Technologies is also thrilled to release adjoining MagicSpam LITE and PRO updates for cPanel/WHM. Over the last few months, we’ve been working tirelessly to address issues with our “Logs.” It was clear certain areas of the software weren’t performing up to snuff, or even running optimally, so we had to remove them temporarily while we worked out the kinks. Now, with MagicSpam PRO v2.2.1 and LITE v2.1.1, we are pleased to announce the issues have been addressed and Log functions are up and running once more.

Beyond Log Search functionality changes, we have implemented several quality of life features.

Better compatibility with the latest Linux kernels

With the introduction of the fs.protect_regular_files feature in recent Linux Kernels, our team has worked diligently to ensure compatibility and overcome potential obstacles. This update resolves issues with the upgrade now functionality, providing users with real-time feedback during the upgrade process.

Restoration of Logs and Log Search features

As mentioned,advanced log search capabilities, including search by subject, sender header, and more, were shelved for development and maintenance. With this update, these features return and function properly.

Enhanced security for WHM API interaction

In this MagicSpam release for cPanel, significant improvements have been made to enhance the security of WHM API interaction. These enhancements include the implementation of explicit host restrictions and the automatic expiration of API keys upon package removal. By introducing explicit host restrictions, we ensure that only authorized hosts can access the generated API keys, adding an additional layer of security to the system. On top of that, the automatic expiration of API keys upon package removal prevents unauthorized access in the event of package deletion, mitigating potential security risks.

Streamlining the user interface

In this latest release, we have updated the user interface to improve usability and provide a more intuitive experience. One noteworthy enhancement is the cleaner alignment on the Anti-Spam System Options page, ensuring elements are neatly organized for easier navigation. By streamlining the interface, users can effortlessly access and configure settings, leading to a smoother and more efficient workflow.

Email notification management improvements

We made enhancing email notification management a priority in this update. By addressing issues related to notification message delivery, including compatibility with SPF checks, we have bolstered the reliability of email notifications. Additionally, users now have the flexibility to set the sender email address for notifications, empowering them to customize their communication preferences according to their needs.

Additional Platform Support

We have extended support for new operating systems, including Redhat/CentOS 9, Rocky Linux 9, CloudLinux 9, Alma Linux 9, and Ubuntu 22.04.

While embracing these advancements, we have also deprecated support for outdated systems, ensuring that our platform remains aligned with evolving technology standards and user requirements.
