In your opinion, what is the best antivirus software to use when running Linux?
F-Secure offers some great tools for combating malicious code. Their F-Secure Linux Client Security tool is solid and is available for a free 30-day trial at https://europe.f-secure.com/products/anti-virus/fsavlcs/. Afterwards, you have to buy a license, of course. Norman also has an interesting commercial product at http://www.norman.com/Product/Corporate/Servers/Virus_Control/10795/.
