    Yes, the most effective security measure is password-protect admincp and modcp.

    I somehow recall seeing a thread or post with tips on how to secure your AdminCP by changing the path to the AdminCp folder.

    Not sure if I recall correctly - or whether this can be done without introducing complications - but is it a good idea to introduce an extra folder in the path to ACP to prevent hackers from easily finding your ACP folder, such as the following example?
