There is also ClamAV
Antivirus for Windows (freeware)
AVG free http://www.grisoft.com/
I have both Linux (SUSE 9.6) and Windows (2000 and XP) machines that need antivirus. To minimize the work and headaches I need an antivirus software that works on both Linux and windows. I am looking for recommendations.
Also, I need to find a site that has comprehensive evaluations on antivirus packages. I have been looking at a number of sites and have found conflicting opinions.
...It's completely normal. Test results from various websites will normally be "similar" but they aren't always the same...That's why it's called an "opinion". Each organization doing the test will do it a little different. If you'd like another recent test result site, see the info below:
A nice comparative review of popular antivirus programs which includes both Avast and AVG which aren't always easy to find..
Here is a link to the August 2005 pdf file for the specific results:
One other point...I don't think there is a single antivirus program versuib that will work with both Linux and Windows. At least, I've never heard of one...Both operating systems are sufficiently different that separate scan engines are required. Although there may be programs from the "same company" which work on both OS, the "one size fits all" approach doesn't normally work with an antivirus. They are only supported on specific operating systems so separate versions are required..
Hope this helps.
