Hi, I am paranoid about viruses even though there is none for Linux, exactly. Could someone let me know of a good security program for Ubuntu? Thanks!...

    "Security program" is too broad a topic. Are you looking specifically for a firewall, a virus scanner, a port activity monitor, what?

    A virus scanner, because I already have Firestarter, the firewall. Thank you!

    F-prot is one. Also there's ClamAV.
