cPanel TSR-2014-0004 Announcement
Posted on May 19, 2014 by cPanel
cPanel has released new builds for all public update tiers. These updates
provide targeted changes to address security concerns with the cPanel & WHM
product. These builds are currently available to all customers via the
standard update system.
cPanel has rated these updates as having security impact levels ranging from
Minor to Important.
Information on cPanels security ratings is available at
If your deployed cPanel & WHM servers are configured to automatically update
when new releases are available, then no action is required. Your systems will
update automatically. If you have disabled automatic updates, then we strongly
encourage you to update your cPanel & WHM installations at your earliest
The following cPanel & WHM versions address all known vulnerabilities:
* 18.104.22.168 & Greater
* 22.214.171.124 & Greater
* 126.96.36.199 & Greater
The latest public releases of cPanel & WHM for all update tiers are available
SECURITY ISSUE INFORMATION
The cPanel security team and independent security researchers identified the
resolved security issues. There is no reason to believe that these
vulnerabilities have been made known to the public. As such, cPanel will only
release limited information about the vulnerabilities at this time.
Once sufficient time has passed, allowing cPanel & WHM systems to
automatically update to the new versions, cPanel will release additional
information about the nature of the security issues. This Targeted Security
Release addresses 52 vulnerabilities in cPanel & WHM software versions 11.44,
11.42, and 11.40.
Additional information is scheduled for release on May 26th, 2014.
For information on cPanel & WHM Versions and the Release Process, read our
