Virus attack on linux box.
Can a virus attack a unix/linux box? As we know windows is suffering from massive attacks by the viruses, so how about linux box? Can we find viruses in a linux box? If so is there any software to wipe out viruses from the linux box? So please any one explain regarding these questions.

Not really, but if you are running X as root and surfing the web as root you run a potential risk of being owned by malicious code.

Topic moved to more apropriate area.
I used to run Clamav every now and again, but I've never found a virus on my box. I would run Rootkit Hunter instead. I really like this little programme (it runs from a command line).
It takes a few goes to learn how to run it to your satisfaction, and it often produces one or two alarming messages! But mostly these are nothing to worry about.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
