Linux ?

Recommended Posts

As you may or may not know Linux and Mac are based on the Unix System. Linux and Macs do not get spyware or viruses or trojans or adware. People who make virues and pests for linux and Macs don't get very far because it's much harder to write a virus for linux or mac than for windows. There are a few people who try but not enough.

 

Unless hackers start targeting Linux and Mac users heavily there will be no need for any AntiSpyware or AntiVirus on Linux or Macs. The reason such products exists though is because people who work in the offices and do business emails and such do not want to risk infecting windows users so they have linux security that detects Windows viruses they do not detect linux virues cause non really exist.

 

Hope this clears things up.
