Antivirus in Linux ?

Hi everybody !

I have found this antivirus online: https://www.comodo.com/home/internet-se ... -linux.php

Is it useful install an antivirus on Linux environment ?

If Linux is open source, so every kind of threat can be fastly solved, why antiviruses exist also here ?

Re: How to clean and maintain Linux Mint ?

Ok thank you to all.

By the way, I heard about some commands like "sudo apt-get autoremove" or this tutorial https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/4

I don't know what is the utility of those things.

But if you tell me that there is nothing to do, so it's fine.

Thank you again

Pop-up per notifiche di nuovi aggiornamenti

Ciao a tutti.

Vorrei sapere se c'è un sistema che permetta di visualizzare delle notifiche, ogni qual volta c'è un aggiornamento di un software, del kernel, oppure di tutto il sistema operativo.

Ho saputo che c'è l'applet "System Tray Collapsible" ma non so se è quello giusto.
