    Just run nessus on my Redhat 7.3 WHM 8.8.0 cPanel 8.8.0-S74 box (with automatic security updates, automatic cPanel Package Updates & manual Cpanel/WHM Updates).

    It's telling me that bind and openssh are insecure. I understand this is misleading in the case of openssh, but should I do anything about the bind problem ?

    Many thanks.

    The remote BIND 9 DNS server, according to its version number, is vulnerable to a
    buffer overflow which may allow an attacker to gain a shell on this host or
    to disable this server.

    Solution : upgrade to bind 9.2.2 or downgrade to the 8.x series
