    Hi there,
    Just ran the trojan scanner on the WHM. The results were as follows:
    dev/stderr
    Scanning for Trojan Horses.....
    Possible Trojan - /sbin/depmod
    Possible Trojan - /sbin/insmod
    Possible Trojan - /sbin/insmod.static
    Possible Trojan - /sbin/modinfo
    Possible Trojan - /sbin/modprobe
    Possible Trojan - /sbin/rmmod
    Possible Trojan - /usr/bin/dbiprof
    Possible Trojan - /usr/bin/pear
    8 POSSIBLE Trojans Detected


    Is this something to be concerned about and what course of action can I take if it is?

    Go on, have a guess
    The Trojan scanner is pretty much useless as it throws up too many false-positives. You could try using rkhunter which is more reliable a method. Looking at those files, though, if you have a custom kernel installed then most of those most likely have been changed from the rpm installed ones.
