Is it possible to check the MBR of the boot drive of Ubuntu for viruses within my Ubuntu?
Is there any good software to do this? I heard ClamAV does not check for MBR viruses.

I'm relatively new to Linux, and right now I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on my old Pentium 4 with 1.5GB of Ram. I would like to know how big of a threat computer viruses are to Ubuntu 14.04? I generally only use my machine to check my email, read the news, or to modify a few documents. Is it necessary to install anti-virus software on my machine running Ubuntu? Any advice appreciated.:-s
