Re: virus infection

It can't. Don't look up anything else. You can't get viruses, trojans, worms, nothing.

Re: virus infection

Whatever. Do not bother with anything antivirus IMO. Just make your regular OS updates.

Re: virus infection

Unlikely but not impossible. Best way to prevent it would be to keep your OS up to date with security fixes and not to install random crap from dubious sources.

Here on #! there are:

    Total number of registered users: 9,121
    Total number of topics: 23,525
    Total number of posts: 285,030

Never seen anyone here say they had a virus... Small numbers compared to all the Linux world out there, but I like the percentages
