Symlink protection for cPanel CentOS 6 / CentOS 7 server


By default there is no symlink race condition protection available on cPanel server running CentOS 6 and CentOS 7 server. This is major security issue if the server is being used for shared hosting.

Now CloudLinux is offering free patchset to protect your server against sysmlink race code. For more information on installation, kindly refer our following blog post:


This is a free patchset and you do not require CloudLinux or KernelCare license.


Thank you for your description on symlink. It's really very helpful.  :) :)
