As of 12/6/2012 12:35 PM EST, all of our shared and dedicated servers have successfully received the latest cPanel security updates. However, our VPS fleet is still undergoing the process of having these updates rolled out, which could cause slight service degradation for those on a VPS server.
Our system administration team is currently in the process of implementing a new cPanel/WHM security release that was released today. Please be aware that during these updates, there may be temporary spikes in server usage and services may become temporarily unavailable.
These security updates are crucial as cPanel has stated that their own internal teams have discovered important vulnerabilities that need to be addressed. At this time, there is no indication that the vulnerabilities have been made public.
At InMotion Hosting, we take our customers’ security very seriously, which is why we are applying the updates immediately. Further information regarding the vulnerabilities patched on December 6th, 2012, will be provided by cPanel.
For more information, you can read cPanel’s security notice directly from their website.
