Today when I accessed to WHM, this attention appeared to me:

Important Notice: Incompatible versions of Mysql 4.0.x and NPTL based systems.
If you are running a newer linux system which is NPTL based (CentOS 4, Fedora 3+, RHE 4, etc) and are having problems with MySQL 4.0.x (versions later then 4.0.23*), we recommend upgrading to MySQL 4.1.x as we have determined that there are compatibility issues on these platforms. You can easily upgrade to 4.1.x by changing the Mysql Version in Tweak Settings
If you are worried about compatibility with MySQL 4.0, be sure to check the box labeled: Use old style (4.0) passwords with mySQL 4.1. in Tweak Settings.
If you are unsure if your system is NPTL based, run getconf GNU_LIBPTHREAD_VERSION at the command line and see if it displays NPTL.
* 4.0.23 does not have any known issues, but is subject to security vulnerabilities:
However, when I checked the SQL version, it is:

MySQL Version 4.1.19-standard

Which is recommeded by you.

The problem is now:

1. Why does this attention still appear to me?

2. for the stable version list, it shows me this for:
FrontPage FrontPage/
which is unstable or insecure actually.
So, how can I secure this, or what should I do?

Please help!

The warning message is currently on all cpanel servers if you go through what it says properly. Its merley a message saying that users on MySQL 4.x should upgrade to 4.1.

As for frontpage, recompile apache.
