    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    This message is to inform you that the account dbmysql has user id 0 (root privs).
    This could mean that your system was compromised (OwN3D). To be safe you should

    Do you have a user dbmysql which has user ID 0? If so, what is the purpose of that user? Normally, users should not be created with UID 0

    Code:
    grep dbmysql /etc/passwd
