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
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.
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
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.
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.
AV cant save you from REAL threats so whats the point, i already use common sense for 'normal' viruses
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.
what is the truth? does os x need a virus? how does running programs inside sandboxes make it more secure?
