Look for files under /root that match a Yara signature. This example uses the EICAR test file.

SELECT * FROM yara WHERE path like '/root/%%' AND sigrule IN (
  'rule eicar {
  $s1 = "X5O!P%@AP[4\\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*" fullword ascii
  all of them
 ) AND matches='eicar';
