    Hi,

    So basically it comes down to a few choices regarding the kernel patch.

    1. Forced to buy another product.
    2. Leave as is and take the risk of race condition
    3. Go with cloudlinux which will also cost more money.
    4. Use a custom Kernel that we have to maintain ourselves

    Sorry but this sounds to me that cpanel just wants to sell us another product. If our system is at risk why dont you offer a free option that does not mean extra work for admins such as free software or a free fix.

    We've added a reference to it in Security Advisor in cPanel version 70.

    It looks like a patch is not yet available for that kernel (it can take sometimes take 3-4 days for CloudLinux to patch new kernels). There's a CloudLinux thread on this topic at:

    Kernelcare - Unknown Kernel

    Thank you.
