Actually me, myself (... *yes* ,my first name is John) , and I am aware of Tripwire. However, I have not installed it recently. Surprising as it may seem. In any case, the topic here is abouthttp://www.f-prot.com/products/corporate_users/unix/linux/workstations.html.This newbie got H+BDEV's Antivirus (for LINUX) from: http://www.hbedv.com/download/download.htm and F-Prot (for LINUX) from:
My understanding is that these programs detect WINDOWS viruses as receivedBoth of which are free for personal use.
... if you don't know what antivirus software does, I guess I'm not smart enough to explain that to you!

Now, one might think both John and Elton need to go look at the
documentation for "Tripwire". It is not exactly an anti-virus tool
of the Norton or McAfee schools. However, it is designed to aid
viruses (detection and removal). Whereas Tripwire is merely a sentinel for intrusion detection and (should) be used in conjunction with a firewall, as an added security, IMVHO. However, since I am not running a server, and I *do* have a firewall enabled, this is one point where I didn't decide to "err on the side of caution".
... thought you'd trip me up by mentioning Tripwire, eh? LOL!!!
