Short answer: No virus scanner needed when using Vector Linux.  Smiley

Long answer: A virus scanner may be desired to reduce the possibility of re-distributing viruses which affect other platforms. Personally, I do not use one. I try to use common sense and not forward emails with attachments or distribute files in other ways. This will probably change in the future, but for now I'm enjoying flying under the radar of malware attacks.

You can scan individual files before sending them, using an on-line scanner, like this one:
