Mod Suggestion

I was wondering if someone could make a mod to hide the admin folder or redirect it. Anybody can go to www.yoursite.com/admin and try to hack into it. So why not hide it or rename the file without any problems? Understand what I mean? Is there a mod like that? Or even have an extra security log in screen with a secret answer to log into it. Thanks

This doesn't require a modification; just rename the files (/admincp/index.php -> /bologna/salami.php). And I know I've read instructions about how to add a whole extra layer of security using cpanel.

But these may not save you anyway if the server itself is compromised. Keep daily db backups.
