Any Vulnerability scanner?

  • Posted October 2, 2014

My server was used for a botnet attack. My first attempt to fix this problem was updating my ubuntu and zpanel. Is there any updated vulnerability scanner that I could use to find the point of entry? Thanks.


I am not sure, but if I am using any control panel, I would try to turn on the firewall and open only those ports suggested by the control panel docs…

In case of zPanel, there is a documentation guide showing you block all ports in IP table apart from those which are required for zPanel and website operation !!

Hi Nicogon,

I have been using a tool/scanner called rkhunter with good results for a couple of years, there are proberly much more advanced one out there, but rkhunter helped me out a few times for sure.

You can find more information about it here:

Edit: It may also be worth taking a look at these:

•	clamscan
•	maldet
•	chkrootkit

Good luck!
