    My rootkit hunter alerted me to this:

    - GnuPG 1.2.1 [ Old or patched version ]
    - Apache 2.0.46 [ Old or patched version ]
    - Bind DNS [unknown] [ OK ]
    - OpenSSL 0.9.7a [ Old or patched version ]
    - PHP 4.3.2 [ Old or patched version ]
    - Procmail MTA 3.22 [ OK ]
    - OpenSSH 3.6.1p2 [ Old or patched version ]

    I assume the Old or Patched Version stuff needs to be upgraded? How do I do that?

    Oops. Just realized, that is not a cpanel server. Which means I need the help even more. (I'm not TOO worried as it is very hard to access that server from the net, no php progs running, very little on it... but would still be nice to be up to date.)

    Thank you.

    I'm curious as to how you just happen to realise that the server is not cPanel-based.

    How could you have only just realised half-way through creating a new thread?

    Because I have a couple of servers and get rootkit hunter emails from both of them. I thought it was my cpanel server but while I was writing this post I realized that cpanel should have updated their progs so I thought to look back and double check. Lo and behold it was the other server.

    Hopefully your conspiracy theories are put to rest and you can actually help me with this problem.

    Sorry if I sounded a bit odd - one of the problems of a text-only medium.

    In fact, I was just geniunely intrigued how you came to suddenly spot the lack of cPanel on the server.

    Haha. OK, so now that your genuine intrigue has been satisfied, would you mind helping me out with my genuine need for a solution to this security hole?

    Anybody have an idea? Is this hard to do?

    Doing some googling I found out how to get version information and it says this is my version:

    Linux version 2.4.21-27.0.2.ELsmp

    The guy that handled this for me has taken a few months off so I'm kind of stuck beyond my knowledge base.

    Go on, have a guess
    Since this is not related to a server running cPanel it's way OT and not appropriate to these forums :) You should probably ask on a general server admin forum since it's going to be specific to however you've setup your OS updates.
