Linux as its known to be virus free but can we guaranty that its fully secured. I believe the threat to a Linux machine is not necessarily external threat but more of internal threat (user). How often do we scan our USB devices for viruses? Maybe never for most of us.
This post is focused on one of the most competitive antivirus application out in the market (BitDefender). BitDefender was founded in 2001 and was developed by a Romania-based software company Softwin. So how do we install this on an Ubuntu Desktop machine.
Step 1: Add Bitdefender Official Repository
$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://download.bitdefender.com/repos/deb/ bitdefender non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bitdefender.list'
Step 2: Download and Install Key
$ wget -O- -q http://download.bitdefender.com/repos/deb/bd.key.asc | sudo apt-key add -
Step 3: Update and Install Bitdefender
$ sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install bitdefender-scanner-gui
Step 4: Start Bitdefender
sudo apt-get remove bitdefender-scanner-guicomments powered by Disqus
