This article will show you how to install Malware scanners on your server.
For Linux servers, you can install the below:
You can install Maldet via SSH by entering this command:
tar -xzf maldetect-current.tar.gz
To scan a folder, for example /var, you should enter maldet -a /var. This will print an output with two commands, which will either show the scan results or quarantine the infected files.
To install ClamAV, run the command:
Before scanning with ClamAV you should run Freshclam. This will update the ClamAV definitions database, which means that the scan will include any new pieces of malware.
clamscan -rvi / --log=malwarescan.txt
To view the instances of malware that have been found you can view the log file by running:
cat malwarescan.txt | grep FOUND
For Windows servers you can download Clamwin by visiting www.clamwin.com and use this to scan your severs.
