keep our ubuntu secure

How to protect your computer from virus.

University anti-virus software

I checked anti-virus software which is provided from university,
and found that it was not suitable to ubuntu (only for CentOS or other distributions.)

Current approaches


After further searching, I found 2 approaches.
approach 1, ubuntu have net filter subsystem in itself.


But firewall is off or unactivated in default setting,
so we can activate ubuntu firewall system using "gufw" software.
(if you do not understand what firewall is, plz search! )


*** In order to make use of ubuntu net filter, we always keep our ubuntu updated.


approach 2
We can use virus scan software. I tried ClamAV.
Using this software, we can manually search
if my computer have any virus or not.

sudo apt install clamav

 method 1 <- I tried this
mkdir ~/virus
clamscan -r -i --move=$HOME/virus .
or
 method 2
clamscan --infected --recursive
clamscan --infected --remove --recursive

In the end


finally even you already tried these solutions,
still we are not so sure of the risk of the malware.
Let's always try to find best way!!!
