How to run a CXS on a specific cpanel account


So you feel a site on your server may have been attacked - and you want to make sure it is clean - how do you go about it?

The following command will run a scan on the selected user directory on the server.


/usr/sbin/cxs --report /root/scan.log  --baction high --bayes --breport medium --clamdsock /tmp/clamd --defapache nobody --doptions Mv --exploitscan --nofallback --filemax 10000 --mail --options mMOLfSGchexdnwZRD --qoptions Mv --sizemax 500000 --summary --sversionscan --timemax 30 --virusscan --voptions mfuhexT /home/accountname


NB: Please replace the with your actual email address - and change the last part of the command to the user directory you need to scan.


To use this command:

1) Open an SSH/putty session to your server

2) Login as root

3) type in and hit enter: freshclam

4) type in: screen -S Scan

5) copy and paste (right mouse in putty) the above command (but with your email address)

6) Hit enter.
