    I keep reading about the latest discovered IE security hole, affecting all IE versions. Sure, I know that everyone should use a different browser.

    What concerns me is the OTHER end of this issue...I read that the malicious code (which IE fails to stop) can be embedded on "virtually any" web server, and has already been seeded on thousands of sites.

    Are our cPanel/WHM sites vulnerable to this? How can we make sure we're not seeded with the kind of malicious code they're talking about?

    Um, No and Yes.. Any website that has exploits can be used as a target, like with any other vuln. If your sites are _secure_, note that no website can be 100% secure, but you get the idea..

    Thanks. Is there an easy way to test our sites/servers for this particular exploit?
