Scan server for malware

Hello experts,

My site was recently affected by malware. I was able to identify the application that was exploited (OpenX) and I deleted it. I am concerned that this problem could have expanded to other folders across my server.

Is there any kind of online scanning system that I could use to check and clean and of this stuff that could still be on the server. Would you recommend any?

If not, what would the best solution be?

You can try spybot http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html I am not sure how well it would work on a server but it is very good at finding malware. Panda security also has a scan online but you have to purchase the software to get rid of what it finds. At least it would give you a good idea.

Of the ones mentioned, which would you recommend the most. Would any of the be able to detect custom iframe codes and such? Thanks.

Between both they should cover a lot of angles but i think Eset online scanner would be more suited in that. Run Hitmanpro first. Scans in 5-10 mins.
