7 of the best anti-virus apps for Linux

While ClamAV wasn’t the over all winner of this, and that is kind of surprising  It didn’t come in last though. Given that they just used defaults in testing it scored 8/10. I’m pretty confident it could score 10/10 with some tweaking.  I’ve always used Clam for quick cleanups of file shares and providing security on the Ubuntu boxes I deploy. Avast has always been my go to security software on Mac and Windows (when MSE & Malwarebytes aren’t an option). Seeing how well it did (9/10) with their Linux tests gives me more of a reason to look at it. Over all the article is a good read if you’re thinking about deploying a Linux anti-malware solution this should give you a place to start your research.
