Client Antivirus

Post by Lauren » Thu Jul 15, 2004 9:31 am

Hello,

Im looking for a good client antivirus to test and install on my linux machine...my boss wants it to be free...is there any good ones out there?? Ive looked around found some..but they are mainly for home users only and not to deploy on numerous workstations. Any ideas or thoughts??

Thanks!

There's clamav:

I haven't used it myself. Hadn't had the need to since I run linux 98% of the time.

Yeah clamav is supposed to be the biggie. You really don't need it on the linux desktops though.

I use clam on a server I setup at work, works pretty painlessly and I guess does a good job. Not like viruses come through for Linux all too often.
