Anyone know how to turn this autoscanning off or change when it runs?

Code:
5405  8.3  0.0  8424 root     bash /usr/local/maldetect/maldet -b -r /home?/?/public_html/,/var/www/html/,/usr/local/apache/htdocs/ 1

I have this: /etc/cron.d/maldet_pub, with this single line in it:
maldet_pub:*/5 * * * * root /usr/local/maldetect/maldet --mkpubpaths >> /dev/null 2>&1
do I just comment out that?

This means a cron that runs every 5 minutes.

This cron might be triggering something different. In addition, you can check /etc/cron.daily, /etc/cron.hourly, /etc/cron.weekly files.
