Security Issue Information

Once sufficient time has passed to allow cPanel & WHM systems to automatically update their installed software to the new versions, cPanel will release additional information about the nature of the security issues. This Targeted Security Release addresses 10 vulnerabilities in cPanel & WHM 11.38, 11.36, 11.34 and 11.32. Additional information is scheduled to be released June 10, 2013.
