I am so FRUSTRATED by Linux fans raving about NOT to use AV on Linux. Look I am a Linux FAN!!!! But am also a security aware person, I make use of a multi sub net network where I live with various firewall rules to prevent one subnet to talk to another.
There is no reason NOT to install AV on Linux, Its like saying "I am immune to XYZ Human virus, so I dont need to be careful" But you CAN still be a carrier and pass the virus on to someone else!
How many of us Linux people use Torrents (up and down), Why would you like to host nasty stuff and spread it just because you "cannot" get infected.
Be smart Just protect the "other idiots" that DO need av and CAN get infected. Place an AV on your Linux box and kill the virus before it gets to your girlfriend's windows PC.
Now that its out of my system - I tried to install Sophos on my RPI v3
, but the script does not allow installation "for this ARM processor"
I would like to use my PI for:
- KODI server for ALL on my network (including windows PCs)
- Torrent client to download "stuff" to prevent others on the network to keep electrical expensive PCs on for downloads
- GPIO manager for a Koi dam opening and closing valves and turning on pumps, and managing my Hydroponics garden
- MAME game station
Ill try ClamAV and F-Prod
