Just wait before you say "there is no need for an antivirus in Linux." Considering only your own computer, you are right but we have to remember that we are working in a "hybrid network", which have many users with different operating systems. With those users, be it friends, relatives, colleagues we are exchanging files and we don't want to spread malware to them saying that "everyone has to take care of their own computer." For this and various other reasons, it will be a good (and ethical in my opinion) idea to have an antivirus installed on Linux computers. The article on Bright Hub explains the reasons and reviews the antivirus products available for the Linux platform.
