Dr.Web Anti-virus for Linux

Protection from malicious programs, including those designed specifically for Linux



  • Reliable protection from all malicious programs, including those that haven't yet been analysed by Doctor Web.
  • High-speed anti-virus scanning.
  • Scans HTTP and mail traffic and controls access to websites and other Internet resources.
  • Protection from Windows-specific threats launched under Linux.
  • Remote scanning of systems on which the installation of an anti-virus is impossible.


  • Sparing use of system resources and low updating traffic make the Dr.Web Anti-virus for Linux’s operation virtually invisible.
  • With asynchronous scanning, you can instantly perform any operation on any type of file.
  • Dr.Web for Linux will never freeze your machine during scanning—even if an error occurs.


  • The Anti-virus works concurrently and independently for each active account, with no additional configuration required.
  • Highly customisable.
  • Easy control.

Many people believe that:

  • Linux and its software are impregnable to infection due to its perfect design and open-source nature;
  • Malware can get on a machine only due to user carelessness and negligence.

This is a fallacy! And such attitudes lead to unprotected machines becoming uncontrollable and turning into safe havens for malware.

The Anti-virus Times



Scripts: Weapons against Linux



  • Constant monitoring of all objects at risk of infection—removable media, email, files and directories, including packaged and archived data.
  • Protects against unknown threats using the improved non-signature detection technology Origins Tracing™ and an intelligent heuristic analyzer.
  • With the unique FLY-CODE™ technology at its disposal, Dr.Web detects and removes malware disguised with unknown packers.
  • Neutralizes viruses, Trojans and other malware.
  • Comprehensive databases for detecting spyware, riskware, adware, hack tools, and jokers.
  • The solution’s architecture has been specifically designed to reduce CPU load and memory consumption.
  • Install, configure and run the anti-virus via the command line.
  • File monitor is highly resistant to attempts by malicious programs to disrupt its operation.
  • Multi-thread scanning significantly improves performance in multi-core systems.
  • Anti-virus scan modes include express, full and custom scan—the latter can be launched manually.
  • New! Scan running processes to neutralise active threats including Windows malware launched via Wine.
  • Different actions can be performed with different types of objects; cure, move to the quarantine, delete; action sequences allow you to define which action will be applied to an object if the first action can't be performed.
  • User-defined file and path exclusions.
  • New! Full HTTP/HTTPS traffic scanning and Internet access control.
  • New! Scanning of links directly from the browser.
  • The quarantine isolates infected files; quarantine storage time and maximum size can be specified.
  • Curing, restoring and removal of quarantined objects.
  • The anti-virus log contains time of each event, name of the scanned object and the type of action applied to the object.
  • Automatic (scheduled) and on-demand updating.
  • Apply configuration changes and add new key files on the fly.
  • Virus notifications, including event sounds, for all viral events.
  • The anti-virus modules are available as command prompt utilities which can be used independently.
