Virusdie is a cloud service that acts as an antivirus for your server or website. The service does not require a software installation on your host computer; ISPserver customers simply need to connect the module to ISPmanager 5.
Virusdie locates and eliminates malicious code on the server. It detects suspicious activity on the website and can act as a firewall. All Virusdie actions are automatically carried out in the background without impairing the operation of the server or website. Periodically, you will receive a progress report
The cost for our customers to use Virusdie is 10 € per month for each server. The number of protected websites is unlimited.
Virusdie for Websites
Like an antivirus program, Virusdie for Websites detects virus files (Trojans, rootkits, etc.) and traces any malicious code in the regular files (PHP, JS, etc.). Virusdie removes the infected code with high accuracy and speed without impacting website operations.
If the antivirus detects suspicious code, but cannot identify whether or not it is malicious, the code will not be automatically removed. You can customize the program to automatically remove these pieces of code, or you can manually remove the selected files and pieces of code.
Virusdie for Servers
Virusdie is able to run server validation automatically or manually for all users (can also be set to validate individually), grant partial access to the settings for specific users, set auto-run schedules, and be set to remove any malicious code automatically or manually.
To have Virusdie running on your server, you will need a dedicated IP-address and the ISPmanager 5 Lite control panel, version 5.59.0 or later.
Access your ISPmanager control panel and go to "Integration" -> "Modules." In the modules list, select "Virusdie" and click "Buy" to the right of the module.
Please enter your ISPserver client area login and password.
Click the "Pay" button in the cart, complete the payment, and then click "Back to ISPmanager Lite" at the top of the screen.
To install the Virusdie module after payment, go to "Integration" -> "Modules" and click the "Install" link for Virusdie.
After the successful installation of Virusdie, the "Virusdie" link appears in the "Tools" menu of ISPmanager.
In the ISPmanager control panel, go to "Tools" -> "Virusdie." Next to the "Virusdie" module, click the "Customize" button.
In the pop-up window, click "OK" to install the module on the server.

The "License Information" field contains the product license key.
Here you can set the maximum size for the Virusdie report and delete the module from the server. The default report size is 512 Mib - this is the optimal size, in our opinion.

In the "Store Reports" field, set the number of Virusdie reports to be archived for review. Set this value to 30 in order to see all of the reports from the previous month. Reports older than 30 days will be deleted permanently.

The report details contain the paths to any files with detected threats.

What is the minimum subscription period for Virusdie?
One (1) month is the minimum subscription period for Virusdie. Upon the expiry of the subscription period, the service must be reordered. Auto-renewal is turned off by default.Go to your personal account on my.ispsystem.com. You can enable auto-renewal in the BILLmanager under "Products" -> "ISPsystem Modules“ by selecting Virusdie and clicking "Edit."

Is it possible to restore deleted Virusdie files?
If the antivirus accidentally corrupted a needed website file, it can be restored prior to cleaning. If the clean is completed, the affected file cannot be restored.
Do not perform automatic cleaning unless you are sure Virusdie will only affect malicious code. Run file testing and review the report to see the threats found by the antivirus. Cleaning and deleting infected files should be done manually.
Virusdie missed an infected file or reported that the file cannot be cleaned.
