I have a CentOS/CL8 system

After a recent Imunify update, I started receiving emails containing the following content. They come through every 5 minutes. Any suggestions on correcting this?

/usr/share/imunify360-webshield/webshield-watchdog:75: YAMLLoadWarning: calling yaml.load() without Loader=... is deprecated, as the default Loader is unsafe. Please read https://msg.pyyaml.org/load for full details.
parsed_config = yaml.load(f)

We are planning to fix this issue in the Imunify360 ver 5.5.3 - the internal task id is DEF-15704
Stay tuned to our blog at https://blog.imunify360.com for updates.

Is there any way to disable email notifications for the time being, so they’ll start back up after the fix?

…actually, I noticed that only 1 of my 4 servers is creating this notification. It happens to be the only one using CL8, but is it possibly a Python version I can simply remove from installation?

Side note: I cannot seem to login to this forum via mobile. I’ve tried several times. It shows all signs of logging in, but kicks me back to not being logged in.

In order to avoid the warning and notifications, please change the yaml.load function to the yaml.safe_load one:

cp -p /usr/share/imunify360-webshield/webshield-watchdog{,.backup}
sed -i 's/yaml.load/yaml.safe_load/g' /usr/share/imunify360-webshield/webshield-watchdog

After that, make sure the issue no longer occurs:
