sorry to bother again, but......

What (if any) antivirus programs do I need with Linux? I hear varying advice, ranging from "Linux is virus-proof" to "Linux is as vulnerable as Windows but there IS no antivirus for Linux" and everything in between.

I would suggest to use the search function on LQ, there are several threads regarding this issue.
And please use better titles to describe your problem.
