View Full Version : [ubuntu] Anti-Virus Software Recommendations?

May 2nd, 2010, 06:30 PM
Hi, all,

Lately, I've been considering installing an anti-virus application - not so much for my own sake, though - more as a common courtesy to Windows users with whom my machine interacts. Basically, I'm aware that my Linux box is at little or no risk virally, but for all I know this drive could be crawling with Windows-oriented crud, and I'd like to show some decency and avoid being an unwitting plague rat when interacting with others.

I haven't even thought about AV software since I started using Ubuntu two years ago, so if anyone knows of some well-rounded and well-maintained AV applications, lemme in on it. Thanks!
