    Is there any way we can remove some moderately sensitive stats from the cPanel side-bar such as the kernel version, the Apache version, MySQL version the cPanel build and so on?

    While I do know how easy this info would be to discover otherwise, I hardly see the point in serving up these kinds of server-internals on a silver platter. It seems like the foremost use of this kind of thing would be to reveal sensitive information to possible hackers if/when we get some riff-raff that signs up for an account.

    Thanks.

    Yes you can edit/remove this by editing the theme files. They are regular html code, so you can just take out the table that you want to remove.

    Actually this information is displayed via the style/branding files, not the theme files directly (at least not in the X3 theme). As a result, you can use the Branding Editor to edit index.html and just remove this content from the sidebar.

    If anyone needs help doing this, just reply to this post.
