    Hello,

    How can we do this using cpanel ?

    We have a few users running cgi processes, but at the same time we have issues with hacking, due to the malicious usage of certain perl scripts.

    What can we do ? :)

    Hello,

    I didn't found much on this subject I am interested.

    The purpose is avoid hackers from 'local rooting' the server.

    To avoid hackers, you need to check & analyze the scripts, make sure that its written in safe way and have the correct permissions. Check the following url for detailed explanation.

    Yes, i get it, the problem is that doing something similar with alot of users in a webhosting is very complicated.

    So Jailing / Chrooting perl is a much more suitable option...
