    Hi team

    Since updating to cpanel 64.0 - I am now receiving these daily emails from Anacron


    /etc/cron.daily/maldet:

    /etc/cron.daily/maldet: line 56: n: command not found
    /etc/cron.daily/maldet: line 59: syntax error near unexpected token `fi'
    /etc/cron.daily/maldet: line 59: `fi'


    I don't currently have Maldet installed - I am considering whether it would be a useful resource, but for now - I assume I can simply remove the maldet call in the cron ?

    Please advise.
    Thank you

    I confirm the same issue here! As it seems this is a result of application upgrade:

    Here is the system integrity checking modified system files:
    /usr/local/sbin/maldet: FAILED
    /etc/init.d/maldet: FAILED

    I also have the same problem and I do have Maldet installed

    Anacron job 'cron.daily'

    /etc/cron.daily/maldet:

    /etc/cron.daily/maldet: line 56: n: command not found
    /etc/cron.daily/maldet: line 59: syntax error near unexpected token `fi'
    /etc/cron.daily/maldet: line 59: `fi'

    -----------------

    The following list of files have FAILED the md5sum comparison test. This means that the file has been changed in some way. This could be a result of an OS update or application upgrade. If the change is unexpected it should be investigated:

    /usr/local/sbin/lmd: FAILED
    /usr/local/sbin/maldet: FAILED
    /etc/init.d/maldet: FAILED

    First of all you should try:

    maldet -d
    maldet -u

    Hello,

    You can remove the cron job associated with this application if it's not installed on your system, or if it's installed, you can report this as an issue on their GitHub page:

    Issues · rfxn/linux-malware-detect · GitHub

    Thank you.
