Is this malware inside the .htaccess file(403.shtml)

I see some line of codes in .htaccess files of my all WordPress sites on the server (cPannel).

<Files 403.shtml>
order allow,deny
allow from all
</ Files >
/////////////////////////////////////
Complete .htaccess code -

BEGIN WordPress
< IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</ IfModule>

END WordPress

<Files 403.shtml>
order allow,deny
allow from all
< /Files>
/////////////////////////////////
Searched on some other forums and they are saying this is maybe malware or backdoor or something else.

Nothing such

Just keep this one :arrow_down_small:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

Rest you can delete
