Need good AV prog for a madriva disto. Any suggestions would help !! Thank You!!!
Don't think that's really necessary. Not very much malware written for Linux.
Thanks to the way Linux is built, you really dont need any
well if you need one, to feel safe kaspery gets the job done
There's also Clamav. I have not used it myself, but it's well known..
I agree you don't need an AV in Linux. However, if you really want one I can recommend AVG Free for Linux:
I've used it for a while myself and found it to be very easy to set up and it has a clean GUI.
Though the latest version dates from the beginning of 2008, the definitions are still being kept up to date.
any specific reason why you are looking for an antivirus program for linux?
With the will, there is a way and or reasons for someone to mount trog,etc....
ok i just was curious to know if you have had virus problems in the past with your linux distros.
