There are altered RPMs on HOST

Did you receive an email from your cPanel system with the same subject as this page? This usually happens when you've installed a package using a third-party repository.

This email is your system's way of alerting you about possible unauthorized changes. However, if you've recently installed a different version of a package or a third-party plugin, it's generally safe to ignore this alert, as these actions can install a modified version of a package.

We suggest fixing the RPMs unless the creator of your third-party package or plugin has explicitly instructed you to leave that version as is.

Keep in mind that developers of your third-party plugins often need time to update their repository packages. In rare instances, your third-party package or plugin might not function correctly with the default version of a package installed by cPanel.

Before you run the command to fix the altered RPMs, consider reaching out to the support team of your third-party plugin.

To fix the altered RPMs, you can execute the following command:

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix
