When logging into Dreamhost’s web-based panel, there needs to be an AUTO-LOGOUT function implemented.
I recently made a quick change in Dreamhost’s Control Panel from a client’s computer and forgot to logout. When I returned a few days later my client still had full access to ALL my domains, email addresses, billing information, and other sensitive data.
I know I should remember to logout after every session, but the reality is that sometimes I’m in a huge rush and it doesn’t happen.
Every other password-protected site I use (i.e. banks, credit cards, ISP, etc.) automatically logs the users off after a certain amount of time. There’s no reason why Dreamhost’s Panel shouldn’t do the same.
