Dear Linux CentOS VPS Customers with cPanel,
We have been advised that there is an update available for Exim bug CVE-2014-2972. The vulnerability allowed that a local user on a server running Exim could possibly exploit it to gain root or full administrative access. Full details are here.
Those of you with auto-update should have already been updated automatically to exim-4.82-4.cp1136.x86_64. You can check this by running the following command:
