It depends on your platform. (Edit: Just saw your subject line - Windows 2003)

If your database runs on a Windows platform, I have always had good experience with the Symantec and McCafee antivirus software. The newer versions detect both spyware and viruses. Also in-memory threats. Downloading fport from foundstone.com will help identify any open ports on your Windows machine. Many of the Windows rootkit/trojan detectors I've tried have been underwhelming (TrojanHunter, for example). Spybot found things that one did not.

I can't say too much about Oracle on Linux, but I have had good experience with BitDefender in general. I hear that Clam AV is another popular tool, though often used with email tasks.

You may be able to find some handy tools here:
