  • 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 it is impossible to install an anti-virus.


  • Sparing use of system resources and low updating traffic make the Dr.Web Anti-virus for Linux’s operation virtually invisible.


  • Highly customisable
  • Easy to manage

Some people believe that (compared with Windows) very few malicious programs are created for Linux and that the same is true of UNIX operating systems.

This is a common myth.

Cybercriminals are attacking Linux, including network devices running this operating system. In addition to other malware, as many as a hundred miners per day are added to the Dr.Web anti-virus databases.

This myth is a boon for cybercriminals

Windows is not alone in terms of requiring protection. PCs running Linux, Unix, and macOS require it too. Once they’ve penetrated unprotected PCs and even if they can't infect these operating systems and running applications, malicious programs can use them as a source of infection— for example, by accessing shared network resources.

Protection components

Anti-virus — blocks viruses and malware from accessing the protected system and will cure the malignant programs that have already penetrated it.

SpIDer Gate® — an HTTP monitor that scans webpages in real time and blocks phishing websites and other dangerous web resources.
