    Hello and Welcome.
    You really don't need anti virus for Linux unless you are running some kind of Windows mail server. Check out this link.
    Note to new Linux users: No antivirus needed
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
