    Assuming you're getting those emails from CSF/LFD. If you visit CSF in WHM and hit the Check Server Security option there, you should get a report that mentions avahi-daemon in it like this:

    Code:
    Check server startup for avahi-daemon 	
    On most servers avahi-daemon is not needed and should be stopped and disabled from starting if it is not required. This service is currently enabled in init and can usually be disabled using:
    service avahi-daemon stop
    chkconfig avahi-daemon off
    
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
