CentOS Web Panel (CWP) has no connection to the CentOS Project

Post by TrevorH » 2018/03/12 17:12:22

Due to an increasing number of questions regarding the product known as "CentOS Web Panel" (a.k.a CWP), I'd like to make it quite plain that this product has nothing whatsoever to do with the CentOS Project.

The use of the name "CentOS" in their application is not authorized by the CentOS Project.

The code they ship has never been vetted by or even read by any member of the CentOS Project.

Use of this product is entirely at your own risk and any posts regarding it on this forum will be closed. Please refer all questions about CWP to their support forums instead. We do not recommend its use.

As a service to CentOS users, please make sure you read https://us-cert.cisa.gov/ncas/bulletins/sb20-216 as there have been a total of 39 separate CVE vulnerabilities announced for CWP, 27 of them rated the highest score of 10 and the remainder score 7.8.
The future appears to be RHEL or Debian. I think I'm going Debian.

CentOS 5 and 6 are deadest, do not use them.
