What is Exim?

Exim is the mail server software cPanel & WHM servers use.

Kindly perform an upgrade to a supported version of cPanel & WHM that are immune to the exploit.


How to check your current Exim version?

You can run this command on the server:

rpm -q exim

Those cPanel Dedicated/VPS clients who not display updated versions after  tryout the above steps may perform cPanel update urgently or contact  support team by submitting a ticket at server-support@cybersite.com.sg


How to update cPanel version?

1) Log in your WHM as root.


2) Navigate to cPanel >> Upgrade to Latest Version


3) Click the Click to Upgrade button


4) At the end you will see a message Upgrade complete


IMPORTANT

When you update your cPanel version, It’s possible that the update will be blocked with an error similar to this:

=======

A system upgrade was not possible due to the following blockers:
 [2019-06-07 02:02:51 +0200] W [FATAL] - You must migrate from EA3 to EA4 before upgrading to v78 or newer. You can do so by running /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 or via WHM’s EasyApache 4 Migration interface. For more information please see: https://go.cpanel.net/EA4Migration
=======


If you encounter this error, you must manually adjust your /etc/cpupdate.conf file to the example below:

=======

CPANEL=11.76 RPMUP=daily SARULESUP=daily STAGING_DIR=/usr/local/cpanel UPDATES=daily
=======


Once you have completed this update (upcp) please set this back to the following:

=====

CPANEL=release RPMUP=daily SARULESUP=daily STAGING_DIR=/usr/local/cpanel UPDATES=daily
=====

This will allow you to upgrade to newer versions of cPanel & WHM once you have migrated to EasyApache 4.


What if you not yet migrate to EasyApache4?

Kindly refer to the following steps:
