Error message received from csf.

Trying to dig into this and some older articles reference cpanel but honestly, it's above my pay grade.

Maybe someone can shed some light?

Hey there! That's not suspicious at all as that's required for MySQL to run and is present on every server. I actually haven't seen CSF flag this one before, so maybe it would be worth reaching out to them as that's definitely a false positive with the potential to confuse many users.
