3 Antivirus for Ubuntu

Although it is not usual to hear about virus for the many distros of Linux, there are good antivirus and free, today I bring you 3 for Ubuntu.

Linux is not immune to viruses, but due to the scarcity of viruses, its users can feel safe without having any other program that detects malicious code.

If you are a fan of the security, you need to check NTFS or FAT32 partitions of other OS or you are just curious, you can use one of the ones I recommend below:

Clam AV

Clam AV, a simple program that detect any threat that can compromise your Linux operating system. It is compatible with Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc… and is available in the repositories of Ubuntu.

Clam AV

The program features a low resource consumption and great ease of handling.

install it It’s simple, you just have to write the following in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install clamav

(This line will download and will install the antivirus in the OS, but it does not include a graphical environment, for this we have to execute the following commands).

if you use KDE:

sudo apt-get install klamav

if you use gnomes:

sudo apt-get install clamtk


Once installed, you will surely find it in Applications >> System Tools.


One of my favorites for Windows is also available for Linux. AVG version available free for these two OS.
