    Hello,
    We are having a few issues when users are being hacked due to sym link issues. I've read that cloudlinux has this component called securelinks which helps fight again this issue.

    I looked through the options and documentation but could not understand how exactly do you activate / enable it. Any guidance will be appreciated.

    It is usually activated by default in CloudLinux, and you can check if it is activated by running:
    sysctl -a|grep symlink

    you should see:
    fs.enforce_symlinksifowner = 1
    fs.symlinkown_gid = 99
