Hi Hannahwtc,

The best precautionary step for preventing the virus is using Kaspersky antivirus for Linux. The free version is not so rich for protection. You have to buy or collect any version with activation key of this software. It will keep your pc safe from all type of virus, malware, spam etc. But, it should be updated everyday.

Protection from linux gateway virus please


I am a long time fan and user of Norton products particularly with their antivirus software like Norton Antivirus [NAV] and Norton Internet Security [NIS]. But unfortunately, I was unable to find a product from their website that is compatible with a Linux system. But even if this is the case, there are still other products that support Linux on protecting the system from viruses and other malwares. Below are some of the best Linux antivirus programs that you can download.

  • Avast! Linux Home Edition — has the following security features:

    • Antivirus kernel
    • Automatic updates
    • Internationalization
    • User interface
    • Virus chest
    • Command-line scanner

  • Bitdefender Antivirus Scanner for Unices — priced at $93.75 for 5 users for 1 year but you can download the free trial version. It has the following features:

    • Desktop integration
    • Scanning archives
    • Mailbox scanning
    • Quarantine and virus submissions
