Should I run Malwarebytes on a web server?

Recommended Posts


I have recently had a "virus issue" with my dev Windows 7 pro machine, which a local company thought they had fixed, but the virus returned on the next reboot.

However, I had been working using Remote Desktop on my live web server (Windows Win2003 64bit) inbetween these two events.

Could something nasty have got on my live server this way? And if I install the free version of Malwarebytes to run a scan, will it upset any of the websites I have running on the site? (which are all legit, and if they went down, I'd be in a heap of trouble) I appreciate there may be CPU usage issues, I'm more concerned that the scan may think the sites and/or IIS6 are nasties or maybe port 80 should be closed etc.

Many thanks
