Adding virus protection to a Linux Server
Tue 23 December 2014
Adding Virus checking to Linux servers is a fairly easy task and is all fairly standard stuff.
here it goes
apt-get update && apt-get install clamav clamav-daemon clamav-freshclam clamav-unofficial-sigs clamtk
this will install the tools you need to allow virus scanning this install includes the graphic user interface version of the tool but its easier I find to run it from crontab
Add this to crontab
30 01 * * /usr/bin/freshclam —quiet; /usr/bin/clamscan —recursive —no-summary —infected / 2>/dev/null /29 * * /usr/bin/freshclam —quiet; /usr/bin/clamscan —recursive —no-summary —infected —remove /var/www/ 2>/dev/null ` -
