    Cpanel/WHM Updates: Automatic (STABLE tree)
    DarkORB Package Updates: Automatic
    Security Package Updates: Automatic

    Cpanel/WHM Updates is the cpanel/whm itself i presume..

    now what is DarkORB Package & Security Package??

    I second that question!

    I'd like to add my 2 cents about those 2 questions. I've found no info on-screen, in manual, or on-website:

    What are DarkOrb updates?

    What are security updates?


    I could guess, but you know, I've made some dreadful mistakes in the past, by guessing.

    DarkOrb must know. Any DarkOrbits here to fill us in?

    I seem to recall something being listed for each of those long ago under the option itself. If memory serves, the security updates would be things that might not be included directly in any particular cPanel update (the OpenSSL issue months ago, for instance). The Darkorb updates I'm a little fuzzier on, but imagine that it might be packages that might be needed for certain functions but not rolled into a full cPanel update. We always advise our ded clients to leave both of those options on auto even if they only do manual cPanel updates, in the event a patch or update is relased independently of the control panel itself.
