Antivirus Programs For Ubuntu Linux
While your Linux system might not be affected by viruses, there might be some lying dormant in your system. Like when you copied or downloaded files with viruses from another system and then pass the file to another computer whose system (e.g. Microsoft Windows) is vulnerable to viruses. Or if you maintain dual or multiple partitions (e.g. Linux and MS Windows).
Be responsible. Don't be a carrier.
From ctsdownloads — Despite not really needing to use an antivirus in Linux, it is not a bad idea to prevent your system from inadvertently becoming a carrier by using these programs. Show notes: http://www.lockergnome.com/linux/2007/11/13/antivirus-programs-for-ubuntu/
