Online Linux Virus Scanner

I tried using google to find a Linux online virus scanner. Not a downloaded virus scanner.
I do not want to have any antivirus scanner on my ubuntu, period.
From time to time I would like to check my file system. I know of such things for Windows, but they are usually limited to a few files.
They want you to download the entire program and have it always running. This is one of the reasons I left Windows.
NOTHING slows down a computer more than a antivirus scanner.
I have a dos bootable cd that has a scanner, but I don't think they cover Linux file systems.
Should I even be concerned? I did read the sticky above, but this topic has come up several times, mainly by Windows users.
Linux virus scanner that will detect windows viruses
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 30, 2011
I have been told that some virus scanners for linux (including but not limited to AVG, Antivira, clamAV, others) are available to ubuntu.
My question is which of these still CURRENTLY support detection of WINDOWS viruses in addition to linux viruses. I would like to boot the Ubuntu live jump drive I have to scan windows machines and at least detect viruses, dont really need to repair.
Anyone who knows which virus scanners compatible with ubuntu that will detect windows viruses as well please let me know, thanks so much in advance
Virus scanner for windows using Linux Live CD?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 17, 2009
Is there a Live CD or flash drive mountable Linux distribution that will search Windows files for potential viruses or malware? I find that many Windows virus scanners are ineffective at removing some of the more sophisticated virus, malware, ect. I was hoping that there was a Linux distribution that keeps up to date with its virus library. I would perfer that it works with Windows xp and vista, but xp would be enough. Thank you for your help.
linux virus scanner for windows network
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 9, 2007
I have just recently moved from suse to kubuntu when i got a new pc, and the old suse box is now a server.
My sister is still using windows xp on her pc, and she is getting virus's and spyware on it. I was looking for a virus scanner that would be able to scan the networked windows box, either from my suse server, preferably, or my kubuntu desktop. Because i can never get on my sisters pc.
Also what would be the chances of a windows virus sitting on my network, linux or windows, and then spreading to any windows, or linux, based machine when plugged into the network? Just to save me from spreading the viruss on further.
EDIT, sorry mods, thought i was still in linux software forum sorry

Windows virus scanner for Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 23, 2012
I'm relatively new to Linux use, but I like it. Heh. Especially cause there are no virus problems.
I use the same file system with Linux (which I use for all Internet activities) and Windows XP (for using the proprietary software I need for my work). My windows system has NO internet connection and NO virus scanner installed (and therefore it runs as smoothly as XP can run).
In case I download email attachments or online files in linux (most of them pdfs or .doc files, some images, jpg etc.), save it on disk and then access the disc from Win XP, there could be a threat in that, I imagine. For Windows, not for Linux, of course.
Is there any Windows virus scan software that works well on Ubuntu 12.04?
Perfect especially if easy to install
Perfect also if it updates automatically, and runs permanently in the background. I know thant's not Linix-philosphy, but as I use Ubuntu only for browsing, ressources are not the big problem.
Thanks a lot!
Live "Realtime" Virus Scanner

first i am sorry for my bad english and i hope i am able to describe my problem understandable.
I tried using google to find a Linux virus scanner which is scanning files that are moving to the file system but without any useful result. I need a virus scanner that scans automatically every file that is copied by USB stick or via Samba share to the hard drive.
Does anyone know such a program or has anyone a good idea to realize this? Thanks in advance for every answer
virus scanner required?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 22, 2010
When I used to install a fresh version of Windows I immediately went to download.com to download my favorite virus scanner AVG Free.
I'm under the impression that this gets handled differently under ubuntu. Is it required to install a virus scanner/firewall and if so, which one would you recommend?
Thanks in advance!
Portable Ubuntu USB Virus scanner
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 28, 2008
I'm currently working at a Uni where some of the windows machines are infected with a nasty virus which spreads via the students USB disks. I'd like to mention that I don't have authority over these machines.
Anywayz, I now have a queue of students and lecturers who can't log into windows (and have non-updated crapware antivirus installed). I am considering the possibility of creating a bootable Ubuntu USB, installing a virus-scanner (AVG, antivir or something) and scan machines I can't boot into.
Has this been implemented before? Any problems or suggestions? Would Xubuntu/Ubuntu/Kubuntu be better?
