    Not really, no. Avast, ClamAV, BitDefender, and others offer a Linux anti-virus solution, but there are so few Linux vira (something like forty-five vs. several hundred thousand, if I remember correctly, and none of the forty-five still in the wild), that their features are based around the assumption that you'll be handling files from Windows users. You can still use most of them to check for Linux vira, of course, but it's not really worth it. Rather, you should secure your machine from other attacks, by keeping yourself up to date with patches, and scanning regularly with an automated vulnerability detector like Nessus.

    Actually, I overestimated that:Wikipedia lists only 14, none of which are still dangerous to a fully-updated system.

    What problem?

    Well I'm sure "everyone" knows this but you can edit virtually any info there...

    This could get seriously serious in some cases...

    And the article here (written in 2003) lists it as 40:60,000. As you can see, reports vary wildly, but all of them agree on one thing: there are one heck of a lot more Windows vira, and none of the current Linux ones are dangerous any more.

    Not really, for the same reason it's not a serious problem that a vandal can rewrite public physical bulletin boards: people will see it, put it right, and penalise the vandal.
