Subject description: a Linux solution for a Windows' problem


Look for Sophos :

If you’re looking for a non-open source solution from a company that’s been in the antivirus sector for quite some time, Sophos offers a free Linux scanner that does an outstanding job. This particular solution does on-access and on-demand scans for viruses, trojans, and malware. To prevent your Linux machine from becoming a distribution point for malicious software, Sophos Antivirus for Linux detects, blocks, and removes Windows, Mac, and Android malware. What makes Sophos stand above ClamAV is the inclusion of a real-time scanner. For desktops that share a lot of files, that is a deal maker.

Once you’ve agreed to the Sophos license (and entered a bit of information), you can download the distribution-agnostic installer, extract the file, and install with the command sudo sh install.sh. During the installation (Figure 2), you’ll be asked if you want to enable on-access scanning (real-time).

Read on if interested installing a 515MB sav-linux-free-9.tgz (link above).

Some commands :
Installing with : sh install.sh
To see if Sophos is running : /opt/sophos-av/bin/savdstatus
To run an on-demand scan : savscan DIRECTORY
