nope

I have Malwarebytes for whenever I do fuck up

I just use common sense and run a Malwarebytes scan every week.

But not scan it?
Do you think Malwarebytes is sufficient?

>>52320626
I don't use operating systems that commonly targeted for viruses so I have a small security through obscurity factor, and I'm also not dumb enough to click things like paris_hilton_sex_tape.wmv.exe

Nigga avast has active protection, it catches shit before it infects your PC. Fucking MWB

Isn't Avast shit-tier?
Huge false positive score rates etc
Why not use Kaspersky or Bitdefender?

>>52320294
yes
clamav and lmd.

coupled with OSSEC and SNORT

Not if SteamOS become the new iOS.
>>
>>52321171
Why?
>>
>>52321432
Besdies the fact that it probably won't happen, much as I'd like it to, SteamOS is a debian fork, so if SteamOS becomes a juicy target for attackers, they'll probably output a hoard of new malware specifically targetting end-user linux boxes.

Not like that'll actually matter. Linux is still a million times more secure than Windows even disregarding security through obscurity, contrary to what the shills will tell you.

No virus scanner has a 100% detection ratio.
If you don't trust a download, don't open it.

It's a mix of hardware and software. The only pre-installed shit that is good desu senpai

Although i use common sense, my PC has enough resources so i keep a light antivirus (pic related). It's been years since i got a virus but there's still sometimes where it blocks adware in program setups

is there a need/reason for antivirus on GNU\Linux? If there is, what is the best?
>>
>>52320294

No, I just do a Malwarebytes scan every now and then. ABP and Ghostery in my browser. Don't install janky software.
>>
>>52320294

No.
>>
Yeah i use clamav to scan external usb drives after they had been plugged to a windows machine.

I just realized that windows is the software equivalent of a black female from an american nigger ghetto.
>>
>>52327084
clamav is the only foss av i know of.
it never hurts to have an av and it doesn't run in the background.

It has limited uses, it was never designed to run a windows style real-time protection.
But hey it's included on os x server by default, so it has to have at least a little bit of quality to it.
>>
a decent firewall is good enough for me.

>ABP
>Ghostery
>DonĀ“t install janky software

>>52325343
i was also going to say that but, when you download a torrent that has been up for months, the AV would actually help a lot in stopping known malware.

While pirating feel free to ignore any positive claim

or better yet create a whitelist

be aware that the jewish NSA will know what you have there thx to MUH CLOUD features

ClamAV respects your privacy and is a fork from Linux avail. for NSA/Client Windows Bot.NET

Eh, I can deal with false positives.

It's the false negatives that you really need to worry about. I like a vast. Sometimes it gets pissy and I have to set up exceptions for certain things I've downloaded but other than that I've never had problems and when I do duck up it has my back immediately.

You mean security through minority.
>>
>>52331357

security through obscurity sounds better
>>
>>52327084
antivirus software is available that runs natively on linux slash gahnoo.
It's for email servers (to protect windows clients), but it can also scan wine folders.
>>
>>52331417
security through obscurity is when the code is obscured. As in closed source.
> wiki it.

i run malwarebytes once every few months. but i've easily gone a year without running it at all. i never get viruses.
