The beta of Red Hat Insights malware detection service is now available. The malware detection service is a monitoring and assessment tool that scans Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) systems for the presence of malware, utilizing over 175 signatures of known Linux malware provided in partnership with the IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence team. The Red Hat Insights analysis provides:
The list of signatures scanned against your RHEL systems, with links to reference information and analysis reports
Results for individual system scans and aggregated results for all of your RHEL systems
To scan your Red Hat Insights systems for potential malware, follow our getting started guide. After your first full scan, you can view the results in the beta version of Insights malware detection.
Please note: Due to the potentially sensitive nature of this information, only Organizational Admins have default access to the results. All other users must first be given access to the service, as detailed in section 2.2. of the Insights malware detection guide.
We hope you don’t see a screen like the one below, but if signature matches are found on your systems, you will see details about the signatures, the number of systems that were matched and details about where on the system the matches were found.
Like the other Insights services, malware detection is included in your RHEL subscription. Malware detection supports RHEL 7 Server / Workstation and RHEL 8 and 9 hosts.
Any feedback about the new malware detection service can be sent to us using the Feedback button inside of Insights — you can see it in the above screenshot on the lower right hand side of the page. Please give the Insights malware detection service a try soon!
