Guest McGregor Posted September 20, 2008 Report Share Posted September 20, 2008 I'm an unexperienced user and new to Linux. But I know it as reliable and secure OS. Sometimes I can find some viruses on my computer - namely in wine and it's no wonder. But the other day I felt a bit confused - for training reasons I was scanning my computer with Clamav and to my astonishment it found 33 infected files. And where?! In /usr!!! I traced the whole path - /usr/share/doc/clamav/test. There were 33 infected Windows files there: ----------- SCAN SUMMARY ----------- Known viruses: 428525 Engine version: 0.94 Scanned directories: 2 Scanned files: 103 Infected files: 33 Data scanned: 1.30 MB Time: 3.655 sec (0 m 3 s) [randolph@localhost ~]$ I don't think there's any danger to my Mandriva. Most probably these viruses are to be there for some reason, but which one I have no idea. I wish someone would shed light on the issue.
