I have a new xw9300 workstation (dual processor, core 2) with Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS installed as the OS. I intend to use it mostly for scientific purposes which means heavy number crunching. It is a stand alone machine (at the moment).
Can some one advise me on the best way I can protect my machine against viruses, worms, trojans, hackers etc? Are there Linux equivalents of the Norton Anti-Virus software for windows?
