    I see no reason to have .cgi-bin in any of my sites. Please stop making it a default.

    Hello :)

    You can browse to "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Basic cPanel & WHM Setup" and set the following option to "No":

    Automatically create a cgi-bin script alias. This setting can be individually overridden during account creation.

    Also, as far as CGI access, you can disable the following options for your packages via "WHM >> Packages >> Edit a Package":

    "CGI Access"

    Thank you.
