    One can add HTML code to the .lastlogin file. If the root user logs in to this Cpanel user's account the HTML code in the .lastlogin file is shown in the root user's browser. This may be used to read out session information and gain root access or trick the root user into entering the root password again etc. etc.

    Please fix this as soon as possible ! And no, I am not going to submit a bugzilla report cause every time I try I get an error message.
