    Hi!

    Issue: I have three accounts in my server. I was checking my CXS scan report and for just one of the three accounts there is the following warnings over files situated at /.cpanel diretory:

    live-engine-connector-5HiIi55SLL.sock
    live-engine-connector-SH3KeAyayy.sock
    live-engine-connector-etc4cMxhyF.sock

    I googled for those file names, could find nothing - except this thread here https://forums.cpanel.net/threads/is-sockets-a-security-risk.203851/

    Questions: 1. Do these files represent any risk to my server? 2. What is the Live Engine Connector at .cpanel, how do I disable it in WHM and if my websites/server/email server would crash by disabling it?

    Thank you and any advice is welcome! :)
