cPanel integrates industry-leading web hosting security solution ImunifyAV into cPanel & WHM.

Texas – March 2019 cPanel is excited to announce that it will be integrating ImunifyAV into all cPanel & WHM servers in the coming months. By integrating ImunifyAV, part of the Imunify Security product set from industry partner CloudLinux, cPanel will provide all customers with one of the most effective malware detection solutions in the industry. All cPanel & WHM users will benefit from automatic scans of their sites and servers to check whether they have been infected with hidden malware. If ImunifyAV discovers infections, cPanel customers can choose to clean the infection themselves with provided instructions, or automatically clean the infections with a simple upgrade to ImunifyAV+. Hosting providers can also elect to move to Imunify360, the only multi-layer proactive defense suite for web hosting, directly from their WHMÒ interface.

 “We are very intentional with decisions to pre-install 3rd party products into our software, and we knew we could only have one security scanner. After working extensively with the Imunify Security development team and reviewing test results, we decided it was a tool we wanted to provide to all cPanel customers,” said Nick Koston, cPanel’s CEO. “The detection rates and product performance are superior to anything else we have seen.”

cPanel and Imunify Security. “The CloudLinux and Imunify Security team are long-term friends of cPanel. In 2018 we started to offer Imunify360 as a featured security product”, Nick continued. “As we collaborated with them on the ImunifyAV integration we became convinced it was the right decision for our community.”

 “We couldn’t be more thrilled to build on our strategic partnership with cPanel,” said Jim Jackson, President and Chief Revenue Officer at CloudLinux. “Having partnered successfully with cPanel for years on the CloudLinux OS and KernelCare, we knew we could do something special with them in the security arena as we were rapidly growing the Imunify Security product set. We view the integration of ImunifyAV into cPanel & WHM, and the availability of all Imunify products directly through their industry-leading panel, as the ultimate testament of our work together to protect our joint user community from all forms of malicious attacks.”

The product team will be working to build this integration for cPanel & WHM Version 82, which will be released in the third quarter of 2019. To be notified of this and other product updates, sign up for the cPanel Mailing List.

Google Quietly Releases Its Hotel Booking Destination With Potentially Huge Implications

In a span of just a few months, Google’s threat in booking travel is looming even larger. Indeed, Skift said last October Google’s new hotel search is presenting a greater threat to booking rivals. Now the tech giant has added a full-fledged destination site for hotels, without any major fanfare, and has potential implications for booking sites, as well as Airbnb, on the lines of what it has done with its already very-popular Google Flights.

Richard Holden, Google’s vice president of product management, travel, wrote about the new features in Google Flights and Hotels in a blog published late last week, and quietly slipped in a development we have been waiting for a year or so now, the full-fledged site for hotel meta search site and booking engine.

Once the users goes to Google’s hotel site and selects a hotel, a “Book a room” button is very prominent. When the user selects one of the online travel agency or other metasearch advertisers, the traveler navigates to the third-party site for booking. But there is often an option to book right on Google for Travelocity or Agoda, for example.

In an earlier blog, Eric Zimmerman, Google’s director of travel product management said, “We’re evolving the way our hotel search works on smartphones to help users explore options and make decisions on their smallest screens. The new hotel search experience includes better price filtering, easier-to-find amenity information and the ability to book right from Google.”

Thus, if you’re going to Miami at the end of March, and there are over 300 hotel results for your search, you can now find the right hotel for your trip by applying a new “Deals” filter. This filter, said Holden, “uses machine learning to highlight hotels where one or more of our partners offer rates that are significantly lower than the usual price for that hotel or similar hotels nearby.”

China's authorities propose to keep minors out of live streaming

China is getting serious about the way live streaming videos affect tens of millions of youngsters, so much so a top authority has proposed to tighten restrictions on underage use.

According to a report from the China Youth Daily, the Communist Party-controlled All Youth Federation recently submitted a proposal during the once-a-year parliamentary session, urging the country to introduce rules for protecting minors online and considers banning those under the age of 18 from hosting live videos.

The suggestion came months after China’s official media slammed video apps for letting content featuring teen moms to run rampant. Kuaishou and ByteDance’s Huoshan, the two video services ensnarled, subsequently apologized and pulled what the paper called “vulgar” and “harmful” videos promoting teen pregnancies.

But authorities concede verbal warnings aren’t enough, for the stakes have grown high for young users and society. For one, the live video format may allow illegal content to more easily fall through the cracks. Young individuals are also more susceptible to scams and may be duped into rewarding streaming hosts big bucks by stealing from their parents.

Aside from blocking minors from being live hosts, the youth union also called for clearer rules around minors’ use of live streaming apps, which can feature everything from esports competitions and makeup tutorials to seductive dances and violent acts. It added that these platforms should allow parents to monitor children’s activity, and any in-app monetary transactions, such as virtual gifting, must require real-name checks. Apps should also get better at sterilizing content, suggested the youth federation.
