Of the various support requests I have received recently, a few have been from customers wanting to upgrade OpenSSL on a cPanel server.

The Payment Card Industry(PCI) Security Standards Council(SSC) was formed by some of the top Payment Brands in the world, including American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa International Inc.. They assist merchants/organizations seeking to achieve compliance with the security standards defined by the PCI SSC. One of their security standards most relevant to a Webhost is the PCI Data Security Standard(DSS).
