    ClamAV is a popular open-source antivirus engine available on a multitude of platforms including the majority of Linux distributions. Install it with the command below.
    sudo apt-get install clamav clamav-daemon
    sudo systemctl stop clamav-freshclam
    sudo freshclam
    sudo systemctl start clamav-freshclam
    sudo systemctl enable clamav-freshclam

    to scn home directory use this comande
    sudo clamscan -r /home
    When you’ve confirmed that ClamAV finds the infected files correctly, use the command below to scan it again and remove the infected file once found.

    sudo clamscan –infected –remove –recursive /home
    #linux #ClamAV #Virus #VPS #ubuntu

    • Be careful when using the –remove parameter. First, run a broader scan without it, and then more localized scan when removing files or remove them manually.

      To perform a complete scan of your cloud server, use this command

      sudo clamscan –infected –recursive –exclude-dir=”^/sys” /
