    TSR-2014-0008 Announcement

    cPanel has released new builds for all public update tiers. These updates provide targeted changes to address security concerns with the cPanel & WHM product. These builds are currently available to all customers via the standard update system.

    cPanel has rated these updates as having security impact levels ranging from Minor to Important.

    Information on cPanel's security ratings is available at http://go.cpanel.net/securitylevels.

    If your deployed cPanel & WHM servers are configured to automatically update when new releases are available, then no action is required. Your systems will update automatically. If you have disabled automatic updates, then we strongly encourage you to update your cPanel & WHM installations at your earliest convenience.

    RELEASES

    The following cPanel & WHM versions address all known vulnerabilities:

    * 11.46.0.15 & Greater
    * 11.44.1.22 & Greater
    * 11.42.1.29 & Greater

    The latest public releases of cPanel & WHM for all update tiers are available at Downloads - cPanel Inc..

    SECURITY ISSUE INFORMATION

    The cPanel security team and independent security researchers identified the resolved security issues. There is no reason to believe that these vulnerabilities have been made known to the public. As such, cPanel will only release limited information about the vulnerabilities at this time.

    Once sufficient time has passed, allowing cPanel & WHM systems to automatically update to the new versions, cPanel will release additional information about the nature of the security issues. This Targeted Security Release addresses 13 vulnerabilities in cPanel & WHM software versions 11.46, 11.44, and 11.42.

    Additional information is scheduled for release on November 24th, 2014.

    For information on cPanel & WHM Versions and the Release Process, read our documentation at:
    http://go.cpanel.net/versionformat.

    Does this update impacts in changes in /etc/init.d/httpd init script?
    I'm asking this because my LFD detected FAILED md5sum comparision test for this file and I concerned:

    The following list of files have FAILED the md5sum comparison test. This means that the file has been changed in some way. This could be a result of an OS update or application upgrade. If the change is unexpected it should be investigated:

    /etc/init.d/httpd: FAILED

    As an admin you are always concerned ;-) To be relaxed you will have to shutdown the servers.
