Are the any malware/security scanners out there, that can analyze apache error and access logs and tell me if I have potential risks on my server or if there is unauthorized access etc. ?

Have a look at apache-scalp, an Apache log analyzer for security.

Scalp uses the pattern signatures from PHP-IDS. If you like what scalp does and you are running PHP, you can have it work in real time and block attacks rather than just detecting them. – Ladadadada Feb 17 '12 at 22:59

You should check out rootkit hunter and fail2ban. They will do a lot of what you need. Watching the Apache logs seems a little too narrow for my tastes.
