More virus writers targeting Linux systems
January 11, 2006
On a global level, the rapidly-growing popularity of the Linux operating system is making it an increasingly attractive target for potential hackers and virus writers. Peter Lipa, president of security company Grisoft, says: "With its growing popularity, it is only a matter of time before the Linux operating system becomes more widely targeted by virus and malware writers of all categories."
Although Lipa accepts that Linux systems are among the most resistant to virus attacks, he said that all computer users should take precautionary measures by installing an antivirus program to address potential threats.
His comments coincide with the introduction of an updated free version of Grisoft's software designed for Linux desktops, AVG Free for Linux.
The revamped offering brings together AVG Free, Grisoft's product designed for free home use by individual users, and AVG for Linux, its commercial product designed to protect Linux servers in an enterprise environment.
AVG Free for Linux can be used on a single computer and is intended for private, non-commercial use only.
