Case 68965

Summary
Reseller ACL checks were missing from multiple WHM interfaces.

Security Rating
cPanel has assigned a Security Level of “Important” to this vulnerability.

Description
When creating a reseller account in WHM, the system administrator may limit the WHM functionality that is available to the reseller using the WHM ACL system. Multiple interfaces in WHM were found to lack explicit enforcement of the appropriate reseller ACLs for the functionality they provided. This allowed resellers without appropriate ACLs to enter translated phrases, access disk usage information, view email delivery data, and check for the existence of MySQL users.

The missing ACL checks in the translation system were discovered by Rack911.
The remaining missing ACL checks were discovered by the cPanel Security Team.

Solution
This issue is resolved in the following builds:

11.38.0.15 and greater
11.36.1.8 and greater
11.34.1.18 and greater
