Cpanel Security Advisory
"Security A Security hole has been discovered in the cPanel's suexec/mod_php handlers.

To resolve the problem:
Update apache using easyapache, or the WHM's apache builder.
Once apache is updated, you should then update to cPanel 9.4.0 or later. (It is recommended that you update cPanel. The cPanel update is not required to resolve the security hole. Howver, it will provide a better security model to guard against future problems.)

* RELEASE and STABLE users should wait until Tuesday June 8th (or when this notice is removed) to upgrade cPanel.
Severity: HIGH"
