I've got this dilemma with my Redhat box.
I'm used to having virus-this-and-protect-that software for Windoze. I realize that Linux is comparatively safe from viruses and that from what I've read most people don't worry about virus-busters. Instead they seem to use things like "intrusion detection software" like "snort" or "system integrity (Aide, Samhain, Tripwire)" etc. (Sorry for quoting this stuff it's come from other discussions).
So really my question isn't whether I (emphasis) should use protection software etc. but DO YOU? If you do what do YOU use and/or in the case of virus software how often do you use it?
I'm sorry for this post. It really arose because everyone's too busy discussing whether Linux is vulnerable or not...NOT whether they use this stuff.
