Re: Antivirus software for Puppy Linux

As you said earlier the Linux platform doesnít need any antivirus program for its protection because the virus canít harm anything inside it. But still some users needs antivirus program for the purpose of intrusion from the hackers as well as crackers. Usually the Virus creators uses Linux platform to write code. So it might be possible that the Linux computer might have some those source codes attached in some files. So it becomes necessary to use security software when they connect to some Windows computer by LAN. Still my best choice is to go for AVG antivirus.
