    Does any body know of an update of fix for the ssl brute force described at

    I d/l the source and compiled it. Ran against one of our servers and it nailed it hard. Within 2 minutes the servers load average was 63 and there were 180 tcp child process connections to port 443. I killed the script before it brought down the machine concidering there are about 150 - 200 accounts on it.

    I went as far as using it against my laptop that is running apache with ssl and it crashed my laptop.

    Concidering there is a general fix for it at secrutiyfocus, was wondering if there is an update for cpanel since going through 100+ servers, vserver, dedicated and shared, and knowing that upgrading openssl might break something in cpanel.
