Hey I'm using Mandrake 9.1, and I was just wondering what kind of virus scans and spyware detectors are available for linux. Preferably free versions.

there's a # of antivirus programs for linux,

as far as spyware goes, i'm unaware of any that affects linux, that doesn't mean you couldn't have a google though.
good luck.
