Linux virus plague coming?

Linux users beware - your world may not stay virus free for long! Malware experts Grisoft have predicted that it is "only a matter of time" before Linux becomes widely targeted by virus and malware writers. With enterprise Linux applications growing rapidly, it may be only a short time before we start seeing virus attacks specifically targeted at Linux systems. Grisoft are seemingly preparing the first commercially developed Linux antivirus product to be available free for Linux users.

"Grisoft is one of the first mainstream antivirus vendors to have started a whole new division dedicated to Linux protection." - Michael Foreman, a partner at AVG UK.
