I just ordered a new server from Codero, and on initial startup, was faced with CPanel's EULA. The EULA contains the terms: This is totally unacceptable. It implies that CPanel has a secret backdoor into a large number of servers. This doesn't seem to be widely known, so I've sent off copies of these EULA terms to some prominent security researchers and blogs. Of course, as soon as I read that, I answered "No", and rejected the EULA. I'll now have to have the server re-installed without any CPanel products. CPanel was once a useful product, and the 5-year old version I had on another server was quite useful. But with a backdoor like that, CPanel, Inc. can no longer be trusted for dedicated servers.
