"Helping CloudLinux provide this patch set to more servers brings us closer to a safer, more secure internet for all."

"KernelCare was developed to protect against various types of security threats, without the need to reboot servers, and we've been discussing with the cPanel team ways to help with hardening of their customers' kernels," said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux chief executive officer. "We just released this patchset for CentOS 6 and 7 to protect users, including the cPanel customers, and help defend their shared hosting servers against symlink attacks."
