With today's version 1.29.0 of ISPProtect we have made some improvements to the code.
The database scan has also been enhanced. In the standard mode using the parameter --db-scan only a small subset of the malware heuristics will be applied to the database contents for speed reasons. With the new parameter --db-scan-full it is now possible to apply the complete heuristics, which are also used for malware scans for web pages, to the database contents. This mode will significantly increase the scan duration, so it should only be used in case a website or database is suspected of hacked data.
It makes sense to use --db-scan-full together with --db-only=database name in order to perform the detailed scan only for a certain database.
