OVIPanel Virus Scanner

A computer virus is a type of malicious software program ("malware") that, when executed, replicates itself by modifying other computer programs and inserting its own code. Infected computer programs can include, as well, data files, or the "boot" sector of the hard drive.

The viruses can lead to improper behavior of VPS Servers or even at cloud server sometimes even though they are secured. It is always a best practice to stay away from these by scanning for viruses time to time.

Keeping in mind of these viruses the OVIPanel has come up with virus scanner.
