Our Networking team discovered a few low threat botnets on some of our servers. What is the best/quickest way to scan/remove the infections?

I have had much success with Malwarebytes, you might want to give that a try first. It's free, pretty quick in the scan process, and has eliminated problems other removal tools couldn't.

Here's the link: www.malwarebytes.org

Good luck!

To my knowledge, MBAM is only for workstations OS.
I love the product, but don't think it should be run on Servers.


HitManPro is designed for servers.

Mbam is only free for domestic use.  Using the free version in a corporate environment is a breach of the EULA.

phototropic,

I overlooked the fact that the issue was on a server.
