If you have a developer account with GridPane, then you can get access to our integrated malware scanning solution: Maldet + ClamAV.
Maldet is short for Linux Malware Detect. This is a software package that scans for malware on Linux systems and has been designed with hosting environments in mind. It's been created to address threats in a shared hosting environment which, for our purposes, is vastly superior to regular anti-virus solutions that typically have a poor track record of detecting malware on the user account level.

ClamAV® is an open source (GPL) anti-virus engine used in a variety of situations including email scanning, web scanning, and end point security. It provides a number of utilities including a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command line scanner and an advanced tool for automatic database updates.
Maldet and ClamAV work by scanning your servers looking for signatures of thousands of instances of known malware, and then logging the results. It's important to note that these are not malware cleaners and you will need to take care of any malware found. If malware is found on your server, please check out this guide and take action ASAP - ideally immediately:
We've configured Maldet and ClamAV to work together to do thorough scans of your WordPress websites and deliver the results directly in your GridPane dashboard.
If you have a developer account and would like to activate this on one of your servers, please contact us on support and let us know the name and IP address. We will then run the necessary commands and can set your first scan going.
