    Hi there,

    See : http://www.zone-h.org/en/news/read/id=2986/

    It's a good thing to see Cpanel listed ? ;)

    I think we have to cross our finger

    Re: Paging Nick !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NICK !!!!!!!!

    It makes no sense to go running to Nick. Since when did it become his responsibility to make sure we all had secure Servers? Sure, he knows a lot and could give many of us the benefit of his experience & knowledge, but so could a lot of people in this Forum. However, none of them is under any obligation to do so -- which is to be expected.

    Although it would be nice, to have someone mention known & proven weak spots or security bugs within WHM/Cpanel, don't hold your breath. ;)

    We do not live in a perfect world (yet) and we must learn as we go along, then test/evaluate to see what works and how. That is how most of us learn and probably always will. Lots of good security info will be found in this Forum, specific to WHM/Cpanel and overall security as well. Read up on the posts, do your homework (test & evaluate) and/or post your questions in the proper threads. This is not the only Forum for good info, but it's as a good a place as any to start.
