There's a free version of f-prot for Linux home-users,
there's clam-av ...

And a few commercial products:
kasparsky, sophos, ...

Chances are that you don't really need a virus-tool,
though, unless you want to be sure that you don't
pass virii on via mail. There only ever were to actual
virii for Linux.


Cheers,
Tink
