Security and Virus Scans in WHM

Security and Virus Scans in WHM


The Quick Security Scan, Security Advisor, and ClamAV features scan your server for viruses and security weaknesses. After you identify a potential security threat, these features prompt you with how to resolve each issue.

Security Advisor

WHM’s Security Advisor feature (Home >> Security Center >> Security Advisor) runs a security scan on your server, and it advises you about how to resolve any security issues that it finds.


Background Process Killer

WHM’s Background Process Killer feature (Home >> System Health >> Background Process Killer) allows you to select processes that the system will terminate when the upcp script calls the system maintenance script (/scripts/maintenance) every night. After the system terminates a process, it will send you a notification via email.


ClamAV Scanner

WHM’s Clam AntiVirus feature (Home >> Plugins >> Configure ClamAV Scanner) is an antivirus software toolkit. It searches your server for malicious programs and flags any files that contain security threats.
