Currently there are under 100 native Linux viruses known but in many
organizations the fact that a Linux viruses exists is enough reason to
install and use Linux antivirus protection on Linux desktops and servers.
Additionaly users of StarOffice and have the ability to open
and view Microsoft Office documents that may contain viruses. These viruses
may not infect the Linux computer but the user can easily attach and send
these infected documents unknowingly to someone else and that is a serious

As system administrators move to Linux files servers they have a real
to deal with since the Linux file server can store Windows-based viruses.
Windows-based viruses can write to a Linux/Samba network share as easily as
they can on a Microsoft Windows based network. System administrators must
protect the Linux server from storing these viruses. The only way is through
active antivirus defense on the Linux server itself. Our Vexira Antivirus
Linux, as an example, detects not only Linux-based viruses but also Windows
and DOS-based as well, I think the current number of malicious or
malicious applications (viruses, trojans, worms, etc...) we detect is above
74,000 now.
