    core.* files are generated when a script ceases execution and as a result a core dump file containing environmental information at the time of the core dump is generated. It is concerning that these would be in /usr/local/cpanel/ so you should let our technical analysts assist you with this. It is generally a bad thing to have core.* files on the server as it is indicative of a significant issue that needs resolution. Simply deleting the files will not resolve the issue that is causing the files to be created.
