CloudLinux 7 hybrid kernel module is now available for download from our updates-testing repository.

Release notes

  • In this release we’ve introduced a new parameter: fs.process_symlinks_by_task to protect against symlink vulnerability where an attacker might get access to files out of the CageFS via cPanel tools: File Manager, WebDAV, Webmail, etc. See how to enable the protection in the documentation.
  • We’ve also introduced a new experimental tool that allows to enter the corresponding LVE when using cPanel tools on-behalf of a non-root user. See details in the documentation.
  • We changed the umask behavior for CloudLinux 6, CloudLinux 6 hybrid, CloudLinux 7, CloudLinux 7 hybrid kernels. Now, when entering LVE task's original umask value is preserved, instead of using LVE's umask value.



  • KMODLVE-291: save new loadavg values for the newer CloudLinux 7 hybrid kernels
  • KMODLVE-47: fix panic
  • KMODLVE-47: CloudLinux 7 build fix
  • KMODLVE-47: add the ability to namespace setup based on script executing
