    Hello,

    I am getting Apache Simlink warning in Secuirty Advisory as below:

    Apache Symlink Protection: the Bluehost provided Apache patch is in effectIt appears that the Bluehost provided Apache patch is being used to provide symlink protection. This is less than optimal. Please review Symlink Race Condition Protection.

    Although i have upgraded kernal as suggested as well.Please provide me with the steps to resolve this as i have tried multiple ways as suggested but still i am getting the same warning.

    Looking forward for your help

    Hello,

    If you are already using a kernel-level symbolic link protection, then you can disable the BlueHost patch by selecting Off for the Symlink Protection option in the Global Configuration section of WHM's Apache Configuration interface (Home >> Service Configuration >> Apache Configuration).

    Thank you.
