Question

How to Clean malware Mal/FBScam-A of the apache server?

Several times lately I often receive complaints or reports of abuse by clean-mx.de to the Digitalocean. They say that my site is infected with malware (Mal/FBScam-A), but after I checked all the files on my server one by one very carefully, I do not even find things that are suspicious. I do not know whether the report of the clean-mx.de really valid or just a mistake, but it really makes me uneasy. I sometimes think I should move my site to bloggers with all the risks that may be detrimental to me at a later date. For those who can help, please let me know how to get out of this problem? Thank you.
