Ad-Aware for Ubuntu Linux?

2 posts in this topic

I've been a satisfied Ad-Aware user user for about 8 years. However, issues not related to Ad-Aware have caused me to move to an Ubuntu Linux platform for my home computer, though still using XP and Server 2003 at work. While I am aware that little or no ad-ware/spyware/virus/malware is currently being written for linux, I am a firm believer in being prepared beforehand, so as not to be the first "victim". Does Ad-Aware have a linux version, or is one in the works. If not, can anyone recomend one? I'd rather stay with Ad-Aware, but if that is not possible, I still need a product for home. All computers I am responsible for at work use Ad-Aware 2007, but for my own computer I have left windows for open source for good.

Unfortunately ad-aware is for the windows platform only, so no there is no linux version.

 

I couldnt possibly sepculate if there is one in the pipeline but I doubt it, it would probably be out already.

 

As to your question of other security software, do a quick search (ie on dowload.com or softpedia.com) and see what is avialable under your platform.

 

Sorry its not the answer you wanted and I hope you find something you like,
