    Hello,

    I need your help.

    In WHM Security advisor we are getting the following error.

    .......................
    Kernel does not support the prevention of symlink ownership attacks.

    You do not appear to have any symlink protection enabled through a properly patched kernel on this server, which provides additional protections beyond those solutions employed in userland.
    .......................

    Please suggest how to fix this

    Hello @Rana Reehan Raj,

    You can find the updated documentation URL for EA4 in my previous response. It includes information about the kernel-level solutions (e.g. cPanel hardened kernel) to address this warning message

    Thank you.
