    Hello,

    Can somebody provide explanation for the thread?
    Is WHM/cPanel servers is affected by this vulnerabilities?
    Does it need to do any updates or re-configurations?
    How I can check if my version of Bind is affected by this vulnerabilities?

    CentOS release 6.7 (Final)
    WHM 54.0 (build 19)
    BIND 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.37.rc1.el6_7.7

    thanks in advance,
    Sergey Polyakov.

    Hi,

    Bind is provided upstream by CentOS, and not directly from cPanel. CentOS has released updates upstream already for Bind, and if your server updated last night, you should have those updates already.

    Code:
    root@cpanel [~]# grep -i bind /var/log/yum.log
