    So actually the only avasilable solution ( except for cloudlinux) is GRSec kernel patch ?

    That's correct. The upstream CentOS 7 kernel does not include the symlink protection patch, and there are no patched kernels from cPanel available for CentOS 7 at this time. You can find a list of non-kernel symlink race condition protection options at:

    Symlink Race Condition Protection - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    We do not offer a guide as the GrSec kernel is not officially supported for use with cPanel (though some customers report no issues when it's enabled). I recommend posting to the GrSecurity support forums for help setting it up at:

    grsecurity forums • View forum - grsecurity support

    Thank you.
