I recently updated my server kernal with yum update. I then Gracefully Rebooted the server. Now when I perform an Security Audit I receive the following error.

"Kernel does not support the prevention of symlink ownership attacks. "

I previously had KernalCare Free Symlink protection turned on. Not sure how it could have been turned off. Should I run the script to enable it again?

Thank You.

We have the same problem in kernel-3.10.0-1160.45.1.el7. It says free patch is not supported.

I contacted Cloudlinux but couldn't find a solution.

I got a response from the Cloudlinux team and they stated that the problem is being worked on.

Code:
Your problem is similar to KCARE-10284. The developers are already aware of it and are working on a solution.
I'm escalating this ticket to our CL OS Specialized support team for further assistance.
They will reply to you as soon as possible. Please hold on.

Thank you for your patience.
Code:
Task is currently in work.

Once we have any news on the progress, we will update you via this ticket.

Please hold on.

Thank you.
