    I find this morning that I have a notice from the system telling me:

    Time: Wed Aug 30 23:00:59 2017 +0100

    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/bin/cpapi1: FAILED
    /usr/bin/cpapi2: FAILED
    /usr/bin/cpapi3: FAILED
    /usr/bin/uapi: FAILED
    /usr/sbin/whmapi0: FAILED
    /usr/sbin/whmapi1: FAILED

    Now, my first point of call is to check the WHM updater to see if a new version has been applied. There has been a new version -- 66.0.17 set on my system; but reading the chancelog gives me no indication if the above files have been part of this update.

    :: 66 Change Log - Change Logs - cPanel Documentation

    Can CPanel please add a part to the update log to show which files have been updated so that I can see if this correlates to the change notifications generated by my WHM system?

    You may find the following document helpful:

    However, if you are looking for a simple list of all changed files after each update, then I encourage you to open a feature request for that via:
