Default cPanel Security Issue FollowUp

Please be advised that cPanel's original fix didn't actually get applied if you had ran /scripts/upcp yesterday. You will need to run it again to get the patch and secure your server from the root exploit.

To check if your server is secure, you run the following steps as the root user:

Quote:
wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/installer/c...cker_092406.pl
perl cpanel_exploit_checker_092406.pl
If it says you need to patch your server, please run /scripts/upcp again and rerun the check script.

Also, there are some rumors that this patch breaks phpMyAdmin. I will update this topic once more information or a fix comes out for this issue.

Thank you.

Hal
