    Hi to everyone at the forum. I just received the following notification and wanted to ensure that it it's just part of a regular cPanel update, and not an intruder (I am the only person with administrative access to the server).


    Reported Modifications:

    New account [cpanellogaholic] has been created with uid:[511] gid:[513] login:[/var/cpanel/userhomes/cpanellogaholic] shell:[/usr/local/cpanel/bin/noshell]
    New account [cpanellogin] has been created with uid:[510] gid:[512] login:[/var/cpanel/userhomes/cpanellogin] shell:[/usr/local/cpanel/bin/noshell]​


    If someone could kindly let me know whether this is normal behavior as the result of cPanel activity, I would appreciate it greatly.

    Thanks in advance.
