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 CVSSv3 scores ranging from 2.2 to 6.5.

Information on cPanel's security ratings is available at

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.


The following cPanel & WHM versions address all known vulnerabilities:

78.0.2 & Greater
76.0.18 & Greater
70.0.63 & Greater

The latest public releases of cPanel & WHM for all update tiers are available at


The cPanel Security Team 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 8 vulnerabilities in cPanel & WHM software versions 78, 76, and 70.

Additional information is scheduled for release on January 22, 2019.
For information on cPanel & WHM Versions and the Release Process, read our documentation at


I'm still getting cPanel 76.0.17 when I try to update. Has 76.0.18 been released?


cPanel alternatives:

SPanel is a modern web hosting control panel billed as "cPanel compatible".
Similar to cPanel, SPanel works as a one-stop-shop for managing your webhosting account. It's convenient enough for shared hosting accounts and reliable enough to work with Virtual Private Servers (VPS).
Besides attracting zero royalties, SPanel is lightweight. This means less strain on system resources, which reduces the overhead of hosting options. The interface is pretty much clear and intuitive; Thus, the adaptation of beginners will not be a big problem.

Webmin offers a user-friendly interface for remote user account management, DNS, file sharing, and more. Webmin helps eliminate manual configuration by simplifying the management of Unix-based servers. It is considered to be relatively light and therefore has a high performance. However, many people think that Webmin is more complicated than it needs to be.

ISPConfig is a web-based control panel used to manage and administer websites. Resellers typically use it when dealing with their multiple accounts. From a simple small personal site to a large corporate level site, ISPConfig does a great job.

DirectAdmin stands out in that it offers DNS clustering. That feature allows communication with other computers running DirectAdmin (you can automatically transfer DNS information between different computers without DNS duplication issues).
