I'm running Ubuntu 12.04, just started using Oracle Virtual Box and installed a Windows XP machine. Should I install an anti-virus for the virtual Windows XP machine?
I was on the AVG website and I saw that there is a Linux version for anti-virus. I always thought that Linux does not need anti-virus and the only need for it would be just in case you're somehow connecting to a Windows machine (so as not to infect it). Is this no longer the case? Is it a good idea to have anti-virus on Linux these days?
