Virus


Hello,

Maybe a stupid question but ... are there viruses on Linux. How to prevent them? Is there a kind of antivirus available and similar to Mc Affee or Norton?

Thanks for your help,

Vincent

there are some, but no serious threats, you might want to look at an AV program like Kaspersky, but there's no need to worry. search this site for lots of very similar threads.
