I realize that this is probably a very common WHM/CSF question, but I can't find an answer using search or Google search.

I receive emails from my root account at random times for a particular user who has SpamAssassin enabled (other users do not).

Typical content is shown below. If you are about to tell me how to suppress these messages, I already know. I want to know if I should suppress these messages. A working program should not produce error messages.

If you are about to tell me that CPanel or WHM does not support CSF/LFD, I know that. But neither does anyone else, so far as I can tell. If WHM is going to include the management of CSF, shouldn't this be the right forum?

If you are about to tell me that these messages are produced because the OS or CPanel is automatically updated, I doubt that because I can receive two such messages in one day, and update happens at most once per day.

There are no tools to use to find out what SpamAssasin was doing at the time of the error message, as far as I can tell. This error might be a bug in SpamAssassin--again, hard to believe.

I'm sure many administrators like me get these messages, but there doesn't seem to be a good explanation for why the spamd process should become wedged. Again, a good program should not become wedged. Is this a CSF/LFD bug? This would be hard to believe, since I've seen this for years. Someone reading this should be able to point me to a good and complete discussion, yes?

Thanks in advance for some good information on this.

Typical email message:

If you are about to tell me that CPanel or WHM does not support CSF/LFD, I know that. But neither does anyone else, so far as I can tell. If WHM is going to include the management of CSF, shouldn't this be the right forum?
Hello :)

CSF provides an interface for Web Host Manager with it's plugin. This is not developed by cPanel/WHM. The posts in the last response should be useful, but you are welcome to make this thread here as well and gather feedback from other users.

Thank you.

SpamAssassin often stays running long enough for CSF to see it as a long running process. This is not necessarily a bad thing. On my own systems, I whitelist it in /etc/csf/csf.pignore by adding:

Code:
cmd:spamd child
Be sure to restart both CSF and LFD:

Code:
/etc/init.d/lfd restart ; csf -r

There is nothing to worry. It's simple lfd notification. Your perl script tooks some time to execute because of that you received that message.

/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/514/bin/perl

You can add above perl script in pingnore of csf.

It looks like some one installed SUCRACK Script for brute force su psw attack on the system, I have by mistake removed python and the whole server crashed, now I have to re-install everything from backup I hope everything will be restored normally.

Can any one suggest me how one can install this script when the ssh is disabled for all except root user via su, and only wheelgroup user can login.

Please provide some system hardening tips.
Thank you.
