    Have you tried ClamAV?

    I also think that there is a free limited (not professional but functional) version of BitDefender.

    You don't NEED a "linux antivirus", as the number of virii for Linux systems is so small it's ridiculous. This isn't windows we're talking about here, where things can easily take control of your system, this is Linux, where you have to TELL the system what to do, specifically

    viruses under Linux exist too..

    Dont wait until someone attacks you, make your defence first!

    and i dont think that you always look in makefiles and sourcecodes......

    I never said they didn't. What I said was that the number of them is so small, you don't NEED one.

    A Linux "virus" is possible, though , 1000x harder to spread than on a Windows system, because you have to physically TELL Linux what to do, and the obvious answer of there's no IE (which is the sole result of a major amount of Windows based virii).

    Makefiles and source code have nothing to do with this, because, again, you have to TELL the OS to do this, unlike with Windows .

    Not all Latin words ending in -us have -i as their plural.

    viri is the Latin word for 'men' (plural of vir, man, the root of the English virile)

    There is in fact no written attestation of a Latin plural of virus.

    Does not help you with your problem, but tough, I am in a bad mood.

    BTW, I am not a pedant, in the strict sense of the word.
