(cPanel >> Home >> Advanced >> Virus Scanner)
The ClamAV® Virus Scanner interface scans your cPanel account's services for malicious software. If the ClamAV® Virus Scanner identifies a potential security threat, the system prompts you to perform the appropriate action.
This interface only appears if you install the ClamAV Scanner software in WHM's Manage Plugins interface (WHM >> Home >> cPanel >> Manage Plugins).
To begin a new scan of a service on your account, perform the following steps:
Click Scan Now. During the scan, a new interface will appear that displays the following information:
|File||The number of files that the scan processed out of the total number of files that exist in the specified directory.|
|Data||The amount of data processed out of the total amount of data that exists in the specified directory.|
|Scanner Progress||Displays the scan's progress.|
|Infected Files||The files that the scan reported to contain malicious software.|
A scan may require several minutes to complete. After the scan completes, the system returns you to the Virus Scanner interface.
