    One of my users recently sent me the following email. I generally think of cPanel as being extremely battle-hardened, and in a constant process of fine-tuning security. Therefore I was surprised to see that cPanel systems only get a grade of "C" by default. I'm in general reluctant to take on the technical debt of averring from cPanel defaults. So my question is, should I take his message seriously enough to start digging in and making deep changes to get a better SSL grade? What do you guys do - live with the default setup, or tweak these things? Thanks.

    and he follows up with:

    Hello :)

    I just wanted to note that it's possible to modify the default entry for "SSL Cipher Suite" via:

    "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Apache Configuration » Global Configuration"

    This thread may also be of interest:

    cPanel and OpenSSL 1.0.1c (or higher)

    Thank you.
