    My client received the following email:

    Subject: lfd on server: System Integrity checking detected a modified system file

    Time: Thu Oct 5 01:50:17 2017 -0400

    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:

    /etc/init.d/httpd: FAILED open or read

    Since there is no actual file or link in that location I am not understanding why it would be checking against. I tried Googling and saw no results for this error message. Any idea what would be causing it, or if there is a concern? Thanks.

    The notification you are referencing comes from CSF/LFD as opposed to cPanel. It suggests that "/etc/init.d/httpd" previously existed on your system, and now does not. Have you made any recent changes to this server (e.g. upgrading to EA4, installing/uninstalling a third-party plugin such as LiteSpeed or Nginx)? If not, you may want to post to their support forums on the following URL for additional help with that particular notification:

    Thank you.
