    On one server I constantly keep getting the "Altered RPMs found", and when I run the command:

    /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix

    it goes though, and seems to fix it - but if I run it again a few seconds later, the issue is still the same!

    I run it....

    Code:
    [root@sec4] ~ >> /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix
    [20131112.101204]
    [20131112.101204]   Problems were detected with cPanel-provided files which are RPM controlled.
    [20131112.101204]   If you did not make these changes intentionally, you can correct them by running:
    [20131112.101204]

    After every time, I keep getting the email message that rpms has been altered.
    Why is this? How can the just downloaded rpm be altered the same second it's downloaded?

    It happens that the message stops coming, but then after a few days, it's back again.
    It's always the mysql rpms having the issue. Not always just one, sometimes 2 or 3 different rpms.

    Hello :)

    Do you have any third-party applications that could be altering the RPMs after installation (e.g. pre/post hooks)? If not, feel free to open a support ticket so we can take a closer look:

    You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
