How to Uninstall or Remove Maldet? ( Bash Script )

How to uninstall or remove maldet?

This is not necessary and it is better to keep the maldet. But in case if you want to remove/uninstall maldet, you have to remove every files created by maldet manually and it is indeed a difficult task. So for those who want to remove maldet, I have created a simple bash script and just save this in a file and execute after login to your server via SSH.

Steps 1 : Create a file “auto_maldet_remover.sh” with the following contents

#!/bin/bash

echo "If you want to install, you can follow our tutorial"
echo "http://serverhealers.com/blog/how-to-uninstall-or-remove-maldet-bash-script/"
echo
sleep 2
exit 1
else
rm -rf $inspath
rm -rf $cnftemp
rm -rf /usr/lib/libinotifytools.so.0
rm -rf /etc/cron.daily/maldet
rm -rf /etc/cron.d/maldet_pub
rm -rf $inspath.bk*
rm -rf $inspath.last*
fi
echo
echo
echo -e "$GREEN***********************************************************************************************$RESET"
echo -e " Success!"
echo -e "$GREEN***********************************************************************************************$RESET"
echo
echo
echo "If you want to install again, you can follow our tutorial"
echo "http://serverhealers.com/blog/how-to-uninstall-or-remove-maldet-bash-script/"
echo

Steps 2 : Save the file and give necessary permissions

chmod 755 auto_maldet_remover.sh

Steps 3 : Run the script ( This will completely remove maldet from your system )

./auto_maldet_remover.sh

So that’s how you uninstall or remove Maldet from your Linux system.
