TSR-2014-0004

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 cPanel’s security ratings is available at http://go.cpanel.net/securitylevels.

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 convenience.

RELEASES

The following cPanel & WHM versions address all known vulnerabilities:

* 11.43.0.12 & Greater
* 11.42.1.16 & Greater
* 11.40.1.14 & Greater

The latest public releases of cPanel & WHM for all update tiers are available at http://httpupdate.cpanel.net.

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.


CloudLinux now available on our cloud servers

Posted by & filed under Cloud Servers.

 

We are pleased to announce that CloudLinux 6 is now available on our cloud server platform.  CloudLinux is another spin off of the popular RHEL/CENTOS operating system but with stability, security, and density in mind.  CloudLinux is not a free operating system and does require a monthly license.  We can provide this license for $12.00 per month.  If you are running an existing CentOS 6 server and would like to convert to CloudLinux this can also be done easily with a simple conversion script written by the CloudLinux Team.  The only downtime required for this conversion is for the reboot required once the conversion has finished.  Further information regarding CloudLinux can be found at www.cloudlinux.com or you can contact our team directly.  Additional information can also be found below!

 

Why CloudLinux?

Created in 2009, CloudLinux became the first commercially supported OS specifically designed for shared hosting providers. In its four years in the marketplace, CloudLinux has received numerous awards and has been praised by hundreds of shared hosting providers for resolving their stability problems. Web Hosting Search called it “The perfect OS for shared hosting.” It is no wonder that today more than 1,000 companies successfully use CloudLinux on their servers. It is installed on more than 10,000 servers worldwide.  CloudLinux is a proven solution for shared hosting that drastically improves server stability and security, increases density, decreases support costs, and prevents churn. It sounds like magic, but CloudLinux delivers these benefits by introducing the latest technologies specifically crafted for shared hosting into its kernel. Combine these features with all its tools and integrate them with major control panels and it becomes a must-have for any shared hosting provider.

 

CloudLinux benefits: 

  • Isolates users from each other to avoid the “bad neighbor effect”
  • Prevents users from seeing configuration files and other private information
  • Allows end user to select PHP versions 4.4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, and 5.5
  • Gives the power to monitor and control limits such as CPU, IO, Memory, and others
  • Helps restrict and throttle MySQL database abusers
  • Compatible with all major control panels
  • Interchangeable with CentOS and RHEL.

 

CloudLinux Technology

Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) is a kernel-based isolation technology that limits and controls the amount of resources (CPU, memory, number of processes, and IO) available to a specific user. This allows for improved stability and enhanced reliability. LVE will control web, cron jobs, and shell access, creating a protective bubble around each customer and preventing each customer from abusing the server.

CageFS extends LVE isolation to each user’s file system. Through virtualization, each user’s file system is effectively isolated into its own environment to prevent one user from seeing any other users or their files on the server. This creates a new level of security, making it much more difficult for hackers to attack, deface, or steal data from a shared hosting server. Additionally, it guarantees no SUID scripts are available to the end customer, preventing the majority of privilege escalation attacks. CageFS provides all of this while also providing a fully functional environment for web, cron jobs, and shell.

PHP Selector: With CloudLinux, our customers will have the flexibility to choose the PHP version they need. That includes versions 4.4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 as well as more than 50 PHP extensions and the ability to adjust php.ini settings.


MySQL Governor monitors MySQL usage and detects abusers, restricting their connectivity if they start using more than their allocated resources. This tool comes with a utility to view current usage that provides unprecedented visibility of and control over MySQL usage, significantly diminishing the number of support issues caused by MySQL abuse.

SecureLinks is a kernel-level technology that prevents all known symbolic link attacks, which enhances the security level of the servers even further.

All these features, in addition to regular technical updates and exceptional 24/7 support, make CloudLinux a great value.
