I guess rsync would be the candidate if anyone ever runs into a situation requiring defragmentation on linux. I would have never suspected simply rsyncing the / file system would work. But I recently reviewed a few articles discussing easy ways of converting your existing linux install to include LUKS. But of course, you need to take care of setting up the boot up after rsync, but it'd still be relatively painless way of defragging

It is just a matter of how and when one gets infected. I just recently found a product from Comodo ... Comodo Antivirus for LInux (CAV) http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/antivirus-for-linux.php. I have it. I believe that I did have ClamAV and BitDefender for Linux at one time. I just wanted to let you know about the Comodo product. CAV can, according the application information, can provide real-time scanning and email scanning. Check it out if anyone is interested.
