Virus Scanner


The  ClamAV® Virus Scanner interface scans your cPanel account's services for malicious software. If the ClamAV® Virus Scanner identifies a potential security threat, the system prompts you to perform the appropriate action.


This interface only appears if you install the ClamAV Scanner software in WHM's Manage Plugins interface (WHM >> Home >> cPanel >> Manage Plugins).
