Don't forget to log into root with "sudo" before the command.
re-entered command and got following:
sudo apt-get install clamd
[sudo] password for dwain:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package clamd
Devyn, Mitt: did following--
sudo apt-get install clamav-daemon clamav-freshclam clamav-unofficial-sigs
sudo service clamav-daemon start
Up and running now. Thanks for your help, guys!!
Okay, thanks to @Dwain Peevey and @Mitt Green , here are better installation instructions for a complete ClamAV security system.
apt-get install clamav-daemon clamav-freshclam clamav-unofficial-sigs
service clamav-daemon start
You could also install "clamtk" to get a GUI for ClamAV.
I like your posting. It is well done.
There is just one type of threat you don't stress enough: the user.
All the rest comes second.
It is the user who
doesn't update his system
visits obscure websites
clicks on everything that blinks
doesn't understand the sometimes cryptic waning messages
doesn't speak the language the warning message is written in
doesn't realize the risks and the aftermath of an infection
doesn't care if his system is compromized
doesn't want to install security software
never been infected before, thinks the risks are made up and are only commercial talk to sell their so-called best anti-virus tools
The word PICNIC comes to mind regarding security: Problem In Chair, Not In Computer
For as long as humans are involved, we will have problems and even the best anti-this and anti-that will not help.
Luckily those PICNIC's are a minority.
Wow, I really like your post. That is a very interesting and true concept. I have never heard of "PICNIC" before. Thanks for sharing.
