Clamtk gives a lot of false positives.
Yep and all anti-virus programs on any platform give false positives.
As Clamtk isn't really a die-hard desktop antivirus so much as for gateway,network Mail server protection?
And seems to say so in their description. Or I am reading it wrong?
Don't know about all the paranoia lately about Linux as there are no real world in the wild viruses for Linux?
Don't use it myself on dual boot with windows7 and it has it's own protection.
And no way for a windows virus to get from my linux partition to infect my windows side. Unless I manually transfer an infected .exe to the windows partition which would be pretty careless of me.
If I was networked with windows machines I might install it to scan email files. And of course I was running a server.
But can any linux guru give some valid reasons for single desktop user has a need too?
I would think setting up a proper firewall and protecting your ports and such would pretty much bullet proof your system?
Than some infrequent and rare occurrence of a linux virus or a windows virus being transfered to a windows partition?
