    Hello,

    Whenever I login into WHM the following message is displayed:

    Security Notice:
    A security vulnerability was discovered in cPanel which may result in privilege escalation. This vulnerability can be resolved by updating your cPanel software here. The necessary patch will occur automatically on all servers during the daily execution of upcp. If cron jobs have been disabled on your server, then you should manually update your cPanel software.


    I have cronjobs enabled and when I click on the word 'here' the progress bar stays at 0% for a long time, until I close the browser.

    What can be happening? How do I upgrade to the latest version? WHM shows 10.8.0 and Cpanel 10.8.2.S120


    Thanks,

    GS

    Hello,

    I tried and got this:

    cPanel Update (upcp) is already running. Please wait for the previous upcp to complete, or kill off all upcp processes and try again. You may wish to use '--force' at /scripts/upcp line 43.

    These are the upcp processes running:

    17228 ? Ss 0:01 cPanel Update (upcp) - Master
    17230 ? Ss 0:00 cPanel Update (upcp) - Slave


    Should I kill these and then run /scripts/upcp --force

    Thanks!

    Hi, I waited for it to finish and then ran /scripts/upcp --force. The script did run completely and showed a success message at the end. However, WHM still show the following message when I login:

    Security Notice:
    A security vulnerability was discovered in cPanel which may result in privilege escalation. This vulnerability can be resolved by updating your cPanel software here. The necessary patch will occur automatically on all servers during the daily execution of upcp. If cron jobs have been disabled on your server, then you should manually update your cPanel software.


    Do I need to restart the server?

    Thanks
