Hello, I personally used maldet and I am fond of it by using it in my Dedicated server and VPS, it worked very well. I was surprised that it has found so many hidden shell which clamav antivirus also failed to found out. You can write maldet -h to get all available commands you can use for running maldet on your VPS Hosting.
