Do I Need Antivirus as a Linux User?

11.Locks IsometricPattern

It is a common belief among Linux users that antivirus software is unnecessary. Many long-time Linux users have never encountered viruses or malware on their Linux desktop. Understanding the distinction between being vulnerable on a network and being vulnerable to viruses and malware is critical. While Linux systems still have vulnerabilities and are susceptible to network attacks, the strict permission-based nature of Linux mitigates the risk of viruses and malware. But are you completely safe without using antivirus software on Linux? We examine whether antivirus software is necessary for robust Linux security.
