I see the trojan scan, and security checks, but we have a virus on our linux server, and need to remove it.

Does cpanel come with a virus software, or is it a 3rd party add-on?

I don't think we have the virus, but it is on our server and it is try to infect other computers.

it renames the index.php file in all folders to _index.php then created its own index.php which try's to install an extension or gets the user to download help.zip

it also creates a.php, a.asp, and a.pl in each folder that has an index page.

we deleted it yesterday, but it came back this morning.

I ran a clamav scan in the web folder and found 84 infected files.

if this is not a virus, what is it? are we just serving these files to other computers?

That needs to be treated as urgent

hi,
i think you need to have a Admin look into this, a recent security issue was having somewhere the same kinda stuff.

It would be best that you immediately ask your server provider to look into this or you can Hire any of professional who may be able to track whats causing this and the best way out.

see ya,
