    Hi, i know there are several of these posts out there but it seems there must be a kazillion different kernels on the market for some reason and so i thought it would be better to do this individually. If i am wrong and there is a solution to this please share the correct link, thanks.

    Im still getting the race condition advisory even though i joined the kernelcare service last week and even though i waited because they said it would take a few days to get a new kernel out.

    How do i solve this warning and this security issue.

    Code:
    root [/]# kcarectl --version
    2.14-3
    root [/]#
    
    root [/]# kcarectl --check
    The latest patch is applied.

    thanks :)

    Thanks for the added information. Initially, I thought that CPANEL-17016 only covered the free kernelcare patch; however, after reading the code changes, it appears to handle any symlink protection provided by kernelcare. So this should be corrected in cPanel 70
