Re: Virus and Malware
You can scan for virus/malware/trojans with ClamTK but I think most of what it'll catch is stuff that'll effect Windows Op Systems, not Linux Op Systems. Coming over from OS X I'm use to not having to worry about viruses and stuff. Had a Windows 8 machine for a week, wife picked up a Trojan Horse virus off of Facebook and that was enough for me. Took the dang laptop back and used the money to buy two older used laptops and put Ubuntu 12.04LTS on em' from the start and not had a problem at all. Of course I've moved on to Back Box on my laptop but it's still Ubuntu based so it's not prone to getting viruses and stuff either.
The way I understand it 90% of folks run Windows, 8% re running Mac and 2% run a Linux based system so if you're going to write up a virus program or malware who would you write it for? That's why Windows gets so many viruses and stuff written for it, because so many people use it they can do more damage by writting stuff for it then they can with Mac or Linux.
