    I've installed cPanel on a new, clean VPS (immediately after the OS was loaded) and after each ucpc run, I get the following e-mail:

    I have already run chkrootkit and rkhunter, which both said not much was going on. I even reinstalled the server once (complete OS reload and reinstall of cPanel), but to no avail. I've search for a recent thread regarding this, but haven't found anything to ease my thoughts about this (most threads are over 4 years old and the recent ones haven't got the same affected applications).

    Any idea if I should be worried and what might be causing this?

    Is this the exact contents of the email? Could you post the header of the email as well?

    This the the full e-mail. I've removed my e-mail addresses and server name from the headers (replaced with placeholders):

    You must consider the possibility of false positives. I have several Trojan Horses apparently detected by WHM, one of which is a fresh installation of WHMCS, others which are the default versions of core system files.

    I was thinking the same, that it are all false positives. However, I'd like to be sure they are and if they are, they should not be detected as Trojans.
