Hackers compromised cPanel's proxy server used by Technical Analysts

cPanel announced that one of the cPanel proxy servers which is used by their Technical analysts for accessing customer servers has been compromised by hackers.

According to their forum post, the hacker compromised proxy machine by compromising a single workstation used by one of our Technical Analysts.

The company said "only a small group of our Technical Analysts uses this particular machine for logins".

The company also claimed that they found no evidence that any sensitive customer data was exposed and there is no evidence that the actual database was compromised.

cPanel restructured the process used to access customer server to "reduce the risk" of this type of security breach.
