I have been using the following (below link) that workd very well on several distributions I have tried. It is beyond Clam AV or Klam AV (AV=antivirus) for Linux because it has Real Time Protection! That means it blocks malware in real time from even installing on the system. If you have used Windows then you understand this importance as proactive protection rather than reactive. Reactive is using antivirus or full antimalware (antispyware included) that is only a scanner for infections with ability to remove - but that after the infection has occurred and any personal data comprimise. Comodo (FREE) for Linux really is genuinely light on the system as is the premium (pay subscription) ESET for Linux (best, opinion).

TIP: When downloading either above products, you then go to that download package in your Files and right click the package and click Properties. Go to Permissions and click "Allow this to install" or similar. Otherwise the security of the Linux system just keeps an item like this as a like Read Only mode so it cannot launch.

BOOKMARK
Virus Protection - Comodo Antivirus for Linux
Powerful anti-virus and email filtering software for Linux based computers.
http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-sec ... -linux.php

Note: Once you install the program you will need to open a Terminal with the commands shown in Comodo. This then goes through the License Agreement (standard) that by using you are not going to decompile and sell as pirate copies and blah blah blah. You hot scroll all the way down and then it will automatically install additional driver etc enabling Real time Protection and the full use of Comodo Linux.

If memory serves, ESET just went automatic, done

ADDED: yeah, i was just reading up on the threat particulars and equating to Windows - this is actaully a medium to dangerous infection almost, not quite but almost, equal to the Windows threat known as the infamous Conficker Worm Botnet. FYI
