unlogged changes to certutil and others

Post by karunadave »

Yesterday I received from lfd system integrity check
/usr/bin/certutil: FAILED
/usr/bin/cmsutil: FAILED
/usr/bin/crlutil: FAILED
/usr/bin/modutil: FAILED
/usr/bin/pk12util: FAILED
/usr/bin/signtool: FAILED
/usr/bin/signver: FAILED
/usr/bin/ssltap: FAILED
/usr/sbin/nscd: FAILED

No record of a change in the CPanel update logs (/var/cpanel/updatelogs) can be found.

Previously have found entries in the update logs with these integrity check are done (or if I have updated something myself.

I am worried, should I now panic? :eek:

I'd say it depends on what platform you're on. In my experience, vps servers for instance, OS level updates can be initiated by the host that LFD may recognize but cPanel doesn't.

I checked, it is an un-managed VPS, they say they don't modify OS files.

So, time to hit the panic button. I don't seem to have rights to post to the CPanel forums (although I do have a logon) to ask if these files have been modified in an unlogged way.

The simplest way to look into these is with:

Code: Select all

# rpm -qf /usr/bin/modutil
nss-tools-3.13.6-3.el5_9

Code: Select all

# rpm -qi nss-tools
