ID:	15Hacking shared hosting servers has always been easy. Any client on a server can run an attack with output ranging from information disclosure to privileged escalation, server defacement, etc. What makes hacking so easy on shared hosting servers is the fact that Linux is not commonly used by a large number of non-vetted users. Shared hosting is unique in that way. It is too easy for a hacker to obtain an account on a shared hosting server by using a stolen credit card and signing up or by abusing some outdated script that one of your customers has not updated for years. After that, a hacker has local access to the server and can begin poking around, find low-hanging fruit, and hack your system.

    CloudLinux stops that.

    With our CageFS and SecureLinks technologies, users are virtualized to their own file systems, preventing any individual user from seeing any sensitive information or any other users on the server. All tenants on the server are isolated from each other so if one account is hacked, the hacker has no way of affecting other accounts.

    CageFS Technology

    CageFS is a virtualized per-user file system that uniquely encapsulates each customer, preventing users from seeing each other and viewing sensitive information about the server. CageFS prevents a large number of attacks, including most privilege escalation and information disclosure attacks. The best part is that CageFS is completely transparent to your customers without any need for them to change their scripts.

    CageFS Benefits:

    • Only safe binaries are available to user
    • User will not see other users and will have no way to detect the presence of other users or their user names on the server
    • User will not be able to see server configuration files, such as Apache config files
    • User will have a limited view of /proc file system and will not be able to see other users' processes


    At the same time, user's environment will be fully functional, and user should not feel in any way restricted. No adjustments to user's scripts are needed.
