Do we really need a Antivirus for Linux
If someone feels Linux is Malware free or there is nothing called Linux Malwares then it is totally incorrect.
Due to increasing popularity of Linux as Desktop using Gnome Environment the malware authors are becoming more interested about Linux. Vulnerabilities in Network Daemons can also be exploited by Worms.
Recently there have been few Cross-Platform Threats that can run on both Windows and Linux Environment for example Perl.BadBunny, SB.BadBunny, IRC.BadBunny, Ruby.BadBunny etc.
It is also possible that when you read emails or surf Internet you might get malware content downloaded or sent to you.
Then SAMBA and NFS servers should also be scanned periodically to check if it is infected.
Symantec Antivirus for Linux provides complete Malware protection against Linux Malwares.
It will give a Real Time protection using Real Time scan whenever a File is Accessed or Modified that is moved, renamed, copied, deleted etc. it will be scanned by Antivirus.
