Not a great Antivirus, dropped it after it ranked 47th out of 50-something Antivirus programs at AV comparatives.


Yeah,
I remember reading that too. Was using/testing that AV at the time also.

Good in Linux because it's about the only one you can install through the update tool. Besides, isn't Linux supposed to be next to invulnerable to virus'?

Security through obscurity isn't good security. Linux is just as vulnerable but less targeted because of the low market share.

That's hardly the reason why, but that is a debate that will never end!

Should've added in my first post, that it's bummer this has to be such a crappy AV, as it is exactly the kind of AV I prefer. No real time scanning!!

Almost a pain to make most AV's NOT run in real time anymore!!

Who needs a real-time scanner?
Don't visit russian warez/p0rn sites. Works.

What about compromised known good sites? Little iFrame here or there, perhaps even malvertizement (malicious ad)?
