    I am root administrators.I have few account cannot failed in audit scanning.
    These accounts having same two affected nodes.

    Vulnerability solution:
    Obtain a new TLS/SSL server certificate that is NOT self-signed and install it on the server. The exact instructions for obtaining a new certificate depend on your organization's requirements. Generally, you will need to generate a certificate request and save the request as a file. This file is then sent to a Certificate Authority (CA) for processing. Your organization may have its own internal Certificate Authority. If not, you may have to pay for a certificate from a trusted external Certificate Authority, such as Thawte or Verisign.

    Hello :)

    You will need to generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) for each domain name that you want to purchase a SSL certificate for. You can generate the CSR for each domain name via cPanel (the individual account) or Web Host Manager.

    Generate a SSL Certificate and Signing Request

    Thank you.
