"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Why do I need anti-virus software?
Isn't Linux virus-free?
For the most part, Linux is engineered in a fashion that makes it hard for viruses to run. However, there are many reasons you might want a virus scanner on your Linux PC:
to scan a Windows drive in your PC
to scan a Windows-based network attached server or hard drive
to scan Windows machines over a network
to protect a Windows virtual machine from within the virtual machine
to scan files you are going to send to other people
to scan e-mail you are going to forward to other people
some Windows viruses can run with Wine.
Linux virus infections are theoretically possible.
