    After cPanel updated this showed up in Home »Security Center »Security Advisor

    The system kernel is at version “3.10.0-862.el7”, but is set to boot to version “3.10.0-693.21.1.el7.x86_64”.You must take one of the following actions to ensure the system is up-to-date:
    • Wait a few days for KernelCare to publish a kernel patch.
    • Reboot the system.

    I did a manual reboot and still show up.

    I guess I have to wait for Kernel Care to update to 3.10.0-862.el7

    Hello @vlee,

    In this case, it looks like KernelCare has actually published the updated kernel before CentOS. This is resulting in Security Advisor detecting a mismatch between the installed kernel and the kernel configured at boot time and falsely reporting that a reboot is required. Internal case CPANEL-20239 was opened to report this issue. I'll monitor this case and update this thread with more information as it becomes available.

    Thank you.
