I think everyone pretty much knows how to scan for virus/malware on their computer (MSE, AVG, Norton, Avast, NOD32, etc), but how can I scan my website files for potential virus and malware?

Or does LP do this for us, if not, why not?

Thanks!

I've used this website to scan for viruses on my client's websites in the past:

http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/

It seems to find viruses pretty well, but removing them is up to you.

Hi i used http://www.xnynz.com/ here they provide website protection site scanner service which scan our website regularly.They automatically scan our website daily and identify  vulnerabilities on our website before they can be exploited. Site Scanner scans forms, login and password fields, internal and external links – places a hacker could get in to deface your website.They provide easy to read score board that specify the threats in the website according to which you can respond to rectify it .When the website is cleared from vulnerabilities they provide provide website protection seal that will show the date of the most recently passed scan so your visitors know your site is free of critical vulnerabilities.

If you happen to be using wordpress, the Anti-Malware by GotMLS.net is the best plugin i've found to scan your website.

I think it's the same process as a personal computer. Websites can be viewed as just a simple software residing on the PC, just this time, it's a lot more powerful since it's a server.

If Windows based then just go ahead and run a normal scan here.

PC viruses are different animals than PHP code hacks, and a PC AV scanner is unlikely to pick them up. AV scanners are looking for particular "signatures" to mark known viruses. Some scanners look for changes in program behavior to flag suspicious programs. On a web site, it's harder to pick up certain signatures, as there are so many homebrew attacks. Some things such as base64_decodes can be flagged for manual inspection, but there are too many false positives to allow code to be edited or removed automatically. I suppose that on the rare occasions when a PC virus payload is being carried along to infect visitors' PCs, that might be detected, but that kind of website hack seems to be fairly rare. So, it wouldn't hurt to do a PC AV scan on your website, but you're unlikely to find most hacks.

You can give LMD (also called maldet, Linux Malware Detect) a shot. It will detect most known shells, etc. http://www.rfxn.com/projects/linux-malware-detect/
