virus scanning on linux
(I intended to put this in "entertainment". That's where it belongs.)
I let clamav check my home directory. It found two viruses!
One was something you get by surfing the web with java enabled, which was in java's cache. It only affects windows, but if you visit a page with this evil applet it WILL end up in your java cache on linux too.
The other was a fishing email in my inbox. Not even a real virus.
I cleared my whole .java directory, and I'll disable java applets, they're usually not useful anyway. (no, not for security, just to make sure I'll find zero viruses next time)
