    Hello,

    I would like to know is it normal alert?

    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
    /bin/crontab: FAILED
    /bin/passwd: FAILED

    Hello,

    It's normal to see that notification after updating cPanel because those files often change. This is discussed on the following thread:

    Passwd Infected Chkrootkit

    Thank you.
