I installed this for the first time on Friday evening. I have had a number of messages from CPanel saying that there is malware detected in the 'browscap' folder Generic:PHP/Backdoor.A . When I browse the folder there are a lot of php files with long obscure names e.g. af26a291b02611b619f29585bbb19ac9.php . If I open any of the files it looks like there is encrypted code there.

Are these files generated by the tool itself and are false positives or is there an issue? Any advice appreciated.

Interesting that CPanel is flagging them as Malware and quarantining them! I have had a few more alerts since posting this. Thanks for putting my mind at rest though.
