    I am pretty sure that they have said in the past you need to ask for it rather than expect it.

    Regarding SolusVM, their external security audit should end by the end of tomorrow, according to a response from a support ticket I sent them.

    Ticket to who, CVPS or SolusVM?

    I thought CVPS was getting their own in-house panel made?

    I thought it only counted as 'in house' when you had someone that actually knew what they were doing writing code, as opposed to having to hire outside help to do anything more more than push UI buttons?

    True, but I have no idea if they are actually doing that or even have a panel in place right now. I figured if they had a 'in-house' or 'custom made' panel there would have been a press release or some buzz about it by now.

    I imagine at this point he's more terrified of becoming a target again.  It's very well known that he 1) has zero tech skills, and 2) is a compulsive liar.  Nobody is going to believe that he actually had something professionally made (let alone pen tested) unless a known and respected third party developer/tester came forward to vouch for him.

    CVPS is just sitting, waiting and fattening up.

    How many new SSD servers will we discover come next hack :) ?

    He can pay for development surely.  It being secure, well, that's asking a lot of most programmers.  Better hire / outsource a real audit too.   We are talking fairly big collective sums.  I don't see it happening.  But, you never know with the people mixed up with him in different ways.
