encrypt whole database

@tmtn4sr shared this idea 3 years ago
Declined

It would be much safer if the whole WHMCS database was encrypted, especially if you store it on a host that is not your own. But even your own servers can be infiltrated, so a wholly encrypted database would be the best solution. Perhaps even with two factors?

After all, our livelihoods are stored in this database.

Thank you for considering this proposal!

This is a great idea, but they key would end up being on the same server making it sort of pointless. Two factor encyption authentication or something would need to be used.

This is a must have nowadays with the GDPR in force. Only password encryption is not ENOUGH. User data shouldn't be plain text, period!

This is not a requirement of GDPR. Nor is it technically feasible. As a result we are declining this request.

Ok Ok, you are right that it is indeed no requirement, but your customers, including me take the responsibility what happens if there is a data breach. And your task is to serve your customers... Not technically feasible? Why not? Your are doing the same thing already with passwords.

This may not be mandatory for GDPR, but it is strongly recommended, especially because whmcs DB contains sensible data (client name, address, VAT code, and so on)

You should really re-consider that request

Yep, it's just negligence from WHMCS part, I like there software and custom support, but this seems to much for them...

If a database get's compromised all customersInfo is compromised aswell. Did you guys never thought about the possible negative news that comes out (ABOUT WHMCS) when such thing occurs with a well known hosting company that runs your software? Don't fix it when that happens and write an appologies letter afterwards..., but FIX it NOW!

FIX IT NOW! FIX IT NOW! You are warned enough by now.
