The KernelCare Linux kernel patching service is a system offered by CloudLinux. This product provides ongoing security patches for many Linux kernel versions.

What Is A Kernel?
The kernel is a piece of software that is at the core of an operating system. It usually has complete control over all of the server systems.

It then translates those requests into hardware instructions for the CPU (central processing unit).
