My question is if it is needed to install an antivirus for keeping the
webserver safe. And if it is needed, which antivirus could I use?
I thought about clamav but I read about problems keeping up-to-date
the software shipped with etch-stable.
I wouldn't think so. Generally, anti-virus software on Linux and other
Unix-like systems is to protect Windows clients from spreading viruses
amongst themselves, not protecting a Linux server itself. If you're not
doing mail or Samba on that box, don't really think it'd be very useful.
On the other hand, you might look into more applicable things to Linux
security like rkhunter and fail2ban, mod_security, etc. A quick audit
with nikto and/or nessus wouldn't hurt. And also, keep things as up to
date as possible.
Best of luck! :-)
