Protection against malware for your Ubuntu server

If you want to have more secure server against viruses, rootkits, trojans and other type of malware, I recommend these three packages:

ClamAv (Anti-virus)

# Install:
sudo apt-get install clamav

# Update:

# Scan:
clamscan –r /

MalDet (Anti-Malware)

# Install:
wget http://www.rfxn.com/downloads/maldetect-current.tar.gz
tar -zxvf maldetect-current.tar.gz;
rm -rf maldetect-current.tar.gz;
cd maldetect-1.4.2/

# Scan:
maldet -a /home/

# Run it real-time:
maldet --monitor users
