    Hi All,
    I have just found a the disable cphulkd string function, as per below.

    I feel this is a security weakness. Does anybody else agree? Am I missing something?

    Thanks

    How to release a lockout
    If cPHulk locks you out of your cPanel account, the /scripts2/doautofixer?autofix=disable_cphulkd script in WHM can disable cPHulk to allow you to log in.
    For example, log in to WHM and navigate to /https://www.example.com:2087/scripts2/doautofixer?autofix=disable_cphulkd, where /http://www.example.com is your server's hostname.
