It’s common knowledge among GNU/Linux users that there is a significantly lower chance of being infected with malware when running GNU/Linux than there is when running Microsoft Windows; however, it would be wrong to say that there is a flat zero chance.

Malware does exist, although the odds of you stumbling upon it are low.

Never looked at F-Prot so have no comment other than maybe I'll take a peek. They are usually in applications rather than the kernel; since there is more separation than in Windows, bad things can be mitigated.

(google for Kevin Mitnick, sendmail bugs, DNS bugs, etc).

Running services like Apache, DNS, Sendmail in jails limits the damage.

Anyone know what this is or how to fix it without a complete re-install?

I would estimate that probably 95% of desktop GNU/Linux users do not use any kind of antivirus software, and generally speaking you would more than likely be safe in doing so...

However, if you are the type to err more on the side of caution, you may want to know how to install something to ease your mind in this regard.

Combining these altogether results in a mail server with strong protection against spam and virus-infected mails.

Below are the procedures to setup the MTA (Mailer Transfer Agent) Sendmail.
