    Also, a safe way to keep trojans and viruses out of system is to _not_ to use any downloaded binaries.

    Like you might have gathered from the above there is a large differance between system security and virus protection. I do have a broadband connection and that is something that one does need to keep track of. you may want to run a tool like etherial network analizer or find any of a huge range of security software available for free. Keep an eye on open ports in your firewall and what programs that you allow to have root access. If you don't use remote logins then disable them and stuff like that. There may not be much if any virus software that is needed however there are closets full of security fixes, manuals, and software. You really just have to use some common sense in some situations. If you go to places like crack sites you may find that if these people are trying to tell you how to bust into someone elses' machine they might try to get into yours. Be careful exchanging software with people that you don't know. Not everyone is as nice as they might seem. Try to use official websites for system software. Research things a little before you use them. This seems to be a place to get good advice. Most of the linux community is helpful and genuine. We are all pretty much working together to make opensource computing a better place. It isn't like it would be impossible to write viruses for linux, if someone wanted to, but most of the people who could are spending their time on finding ways to make the kernel work faster or writing applications to do useful things or perhaps there are a few scoundrels writing viruses for windows or cracking porn sites.

    *yep* you can cc everything yourself but I am guilty. I try to rpm everything I can. pure laziness on my part.

    Hi,

    If you want to use a Antivirus in your system you can go for Macafee for Linux.But the antivirus is not good for the Linux System.If you want you can go for the Good firewall.For firewall you can go for iptables which helps you to save your machine from the internetwork.configure the firewall as per ur wish.

    Try for this option.
