Secure the CK Editor, and other admin menus

Is is possible to secure the ckeditor, and the admin menu, (both are in the public space).
I notice that power store now has the new editor updates, but the old files /html/store/HTMLEditor for FCK editor are still present, this is a security issue.

Also can I move the admin menu into the admin folder so it is not in the public file space?

the ckeditor is already secured, it can only be accessed if you are logged in as an administrator.

The entire power store installation is in a "Public" File space.

The admin folder itself does not change the access requirements of the files inside of it. Each file in the admin folder has code on it to restrict access to only administrative users.

accessing the admin menu php file directly will not work, it will generate a PHP error because helper files will not have been defined.

If you upgraded from PS4.x to PS4.5 you can delete the old HTMLEditor folder, this folder is not included in the PS4.5 fresh install.
