) 1. installing virus updates
Viri for linux (well any 'modern' unix) can exist. Theres
code out there that can act like a worm, and some are trying
to get it somewhat platform independent, eg, one object for
linux, bsd and solaris.
The hard part remains to get the virus onto a machine,
but with exploits poping up (see bind), this isn't too much
of a problem. We haven't really seen viri for unix as it
hasn't entered the realm of script kiddies yet. The code is
there though for someone to make a script.
) 2. reinstalling the os
once every six months or so, even the it can be a doddle.
or every other day if you're wanna be a bleeding edge.
) 3. rebooting daily, weekly, or even monthly
