well

by Jaqui In reply to Linux AntiVirus

since the virus protection for linux is almost always to stop windows viruses from getting past to damage windows systems, you may be off track here.

clamav reportedly works on keeping linux systems from getting infected.
but after 10 years of using linux, with no antivirus on the system ever, I have yet to see a single virus infestation of my linux box.

I've never seen hide nor hair of an anti-Linux-virus antivirus program. All the Linux antivirus programs I've seen are anti-Windows-virus antivirus programs, designed to help Linux mailservers protect Windows desktop users.

According to what I've seen, there have been about 41 viruses (depending on how you count them), all extinct in the wild - their exploits patched long ago.

the trojan called a rootkit.

which is why every distro offers the rootkit utility that watches for such a beast and protects you fom it.

Rootkits

by lordshipmayhem In reply to um, there is one..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rootkit

Linux rootkits are not actually viruses, they're a set of tools used by an intruder after cracking your computer system. First, though, the intruder has to gain Root access, which means either cracking your Root password, or such security holes as creating a buffer overflow.

And yes, chkrootkit is a program that tries to defend you against rootkits.

You dont need a anti-virus with Linux...Not even sure you will need a firewall either...If you want to install one i believe AGV has a free linux version...Go to google!!!

firewall

by apotheon In reply to None

You do, indeed need a firewall. Luckily, Linux is a firewall, so you don't need an additional firewall. Just configure iptables to suit your needs (kernel-enabled packet filtering software, fully stateful), and you're set. Most major Linux distributions provide a reasonably well-protected iptables configuration by default. It's still a good idea to have an exterior firewall, for the usual reasons (because even if the firewall is attacked, it doesn't affect the systems behind it).
