ConfigServer eXploit Scanner (cxs)

cxs plugin

ConfigServer eXploit Scanner (CXS) is a tool from ConfigServer that performs active scanning of files as they are uploaded to the server. CXS also allows you to perform on-demand scanning of files, directories and user accounts for suspected exploits, viruses and suspicious resources (files, directories, symlinks, sockets). For more information please visit https://configserver.com/cp/cxs.html

Infected File Action

Choose what action(s) JetBackup will perform once CXS triggers an infection alert.

  • Restore Infected File - JetBackup will restore the infected file from the most recent incremental account backup.
  • Lock Account Last Backup - JetBackup locks the latest incremental account backup of the affected account.

Action Script

Specify the path of a custom script to enable JetBackup to trigger it once an action is successfully executed. JetBackup will then pass the following arguments to the specified script:

  • [1] - The action that was executed (Backup Lock/Restore).
  • [2] - The name of the infected cPanel account.
  • [3] - The path of the infected file.

Here's a sample script that sends an email notification once the JetBackup Security Plugin executes a file restore/backup lock:
