Free Antivirus Software for Linux

LinuxPosted by Aman Hardikar Tue, May 24, 2011 08:48:23
The following are few of the linux based antivirus software that are free for personal use

Avast http://www.avast.com/eng/avast-for-linux-workstation.html
AVG http://free.avg.com/ww-en/download?prd=afl
BitDefender http://www.bitdefender.com/PRODUCT-80-en--BitDefender-Antivirus-Scanner-for-Unices.html
ClamAV http://www.clamav.net/download/
F-prot http://www.f-prot.com/products/home_use/
Panda AV http://www.pandasoftware.com/download/linux/linux.asp

BitDefender AV is the only software with a GUI version and integrates into the desktop environment (Start menu, right click menu ..). It can run continuously in the background similar to windows antivirus software. It also has the antispam module built in and integrates with other useful applications.

ClamAV also has 3rd party GUI interfaces like ClamTk (http://clamtk.sourceforge.net/)
