    Am getting the following warning in cpanel:

    This is running on a linode VPS, output from the command line:

    So the thing is it seems to be trying to update to a lower kernel version? What is the best way to proceed with this, I am worried to do a 'yum update' as it suggests.

    Thanks in Advance!

    Hello,

    You can update the kernel version using the yum update command and reboot the server.

    Hello,

    It's possible some recent changes to how the kernel version is checked with Security Advisor will address this issue. Could you let us know the version of cPanel installed on the system? You can check this with a command such as:

    Code:
    cat /usr/local/cpanel/version
    Note that instructions on how to use the latest version of SecurityAdvisor for development or testing purposes are located at:

    GitHub - SecurityAdvisor - ReadMe

    Thank you.

    Hi, The cpanel version is:

    So could this just be a bug in the SecurityAdvisor?

    Do you mind following the instructions from the "Installation" section on the https://github.com/CpanelInc/addon_securityadvisor/blob/master/README.md page so we can see if the issue persists? The changes are overwritten automatically when cPanel updates so there's no concern of a permanent change.

    Thank you.

    I installed from github as per instructions, when I went back into WHM it's still shows the Kernel warning, do I actually need to restart anything?

    Would you mind opening a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look and reproduce the issue on your Linode environment? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
