  • Being immune to most viurses whilst in the proximity of those that aren’t puts everyone else at risk. The case of Mary Mallon, aka Typhoid Mary, is probably a helpful analogy.Additionally a linux based virus scanner comes in handy when someone has a very ill windows machine, it’s a nice place of safety to scan from and allows the the rest of the hardware to be tested whilst the valuables are tarballed away somewhere.And probably the most common use of a linux/unix virus scanner is piped into a mailserver checking e-mail for nasties.
