    Hello :)

    It's likely a false positive, but did you run "ps aux" or a similar command to review the process?

    Note that the LFD support forums are a good resource for issues directly related to CSF or LFD:

    Thank you.

    That's because most questions have been answered.

    Clearly chirpy is busier than others it seems and most likely dislikes replying to the same questions over and over.

    Server Administration takes more than just asking for help here on these forums, get a reply and go make a change.

    You need to actually read, and learn too.

    That is a false positive and safe to ignore. Now whitelist the particular executable to avoid future alerts.

    1. open /etc/csf/csf.pignore using a file editor
    2. Append the following line to that fine
    exe:/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/php/54/bin/php-cgi
    3. Now restart LFD
    /etc/init.d/lfd restart
