    We're having an issue with PCI Compliance on our server.

    We've got 3 packages that need to be updated:

    -EXIM
    -BIND
    -OPENSSH

    I've got specific versions for minimum requirements that I've verified we don't meet. Our WHM version is current and I don't have any packages marked for update. So I guess the latest versions of these aren't available from cPanel?

    Is there a way around this to install the updated versions so I can put this PCI stuff to bed?

    Hey Michael,

    That might help, I'll have to dig through those a bit more closely. However, this is another issue that was mentioned that was configuration related instead of by package version.

    SSH: Reconfigure the service to use a unique Diffie-Hellman moduli of 2048 bits or greater.

    Ok, so I went through all of them. Everything is backported except CVE-2017-15906 because Centos hasn't released the patch yet. But this was mentioned elsewhere that it only affects read-only SFTP configurations.

    I removed the 1024 bit moduli from /etc/ssh/moduli and restarted SSHD. Looks like everything should be good.
