    Hello,

    Please keep in mind that MalDet is a third-party application. Could you let us know the contents of the /etc/chkserv.d/maldet file on your system? Also, what steps did you take to install this application?

    Thank you.

    Please see the content of maldet file.

    # cat /etc/chkserv.d/maldet
    service[maldet]=x,x,x,/bin/bash -c "pidof inotifywait || maldet -m users",inotifywait,root
