I have decided to not use regular FTP (on port 21) due to its lack of security. I went into the WHM FTP Server selection interface and selected DISABLED. Tested SFTP which still works.

Now I am getting cron alerts every 10 minutes.

Title of the email is:
Cron <[email protected]> /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php /usr/share/ilabs_antimalware/cron/cronjobs.php

Body of the email is:
grep: /etc/pure-ftpd.conf: No such file or directory

I checked crontab but this line is not contained within it.

crontab output:

Any idea how to disable this annoying alert!

Hi,

The entry could be in one of the crontabs in /etc such as /etc/cron.d or /etc/crontab. /var/log/cron might also help you determine where it is.
