Hello, I have been reading many threads about "How to remove malcious script from cpanel". I found some solutions but they all are manual we have to manually scan web directory to check for viruses.
But i am looking for a free program that may help me to remove malcious script automatically. I want to scan every file before it is uploaded on server is that possible ?
If yes then please provide a guide
Thanks you

As far as upload scanning, your best bet is CXS (configserver exploit scanner). It is not free, but if I remember right it's only a $50 one time fee. It does a very good job of scanning as things are uploaded if configured correctly.

A good modsecurity rule set such as trustwave or atomic is also recommended, but neither of those are free either.

Maldet is free, but if you run the auto quarantine / auto clean, it can destroy legitimate files or remove legitimate base64 encoded code very easily. It is good for identifying malware if you have the skills to properly clean it.
