    So we recently had a virus on the server. I got rid of it. However, I was surprised to notice that ClamAV was unable to find the virus. Now I'm not a system administrator or something, so I don't know too much about virus protection for servers. Does anyone have any advice? Maybe a different virus scanner than ClamAV? Or some other sort of advice?

    Thanks.

    Got any more details about this virus on your Linux server you can share?

    The ESET scanner named it "JS/Iframe.BQ Trojan". It was in an index.php file and consisted of a single line of code of gzdeflated instructions.

    Did you actually scan your account and clamav came up with nothing, or do you mean you wished clamav found this on its own, like an A/V might do on a windows computer?

    I manually told ClamAV to scan the infected directories, and it found nothing.
