    Googd or bad

    Is it safe for users to have access to /proc/* ?
    One client was telling me that it wouldn't be good to cPanel users to have access to cat /proc/*

    Is that true and how can it be disabled?

    disable it by opening php.ini and in disable functions disable popen and the other ones related to proc you have to look them up
    A lot of scripts require access to proc to function properly. But you can disable popen without many problems.
    and for it being unsafe for them to have access, well, as long as you have an up to date kernel, all should be well

    Always Always Always err on the side of too much security, especially in a shared environment.
