If someone feels Linux is Malware-free or there is nothing called Linux Malwares that is totally incorrect. Due to increasing popularity of Linux as Desktop using Gnome Environment, the malware authors are becoming more interested in Linux. Vulnerabilities in Network Daemons can also be exploited by Worms.
Recently, there have been few Cross-Platform Threats that can run on both Windows and Linux Environment for example: Perl.BadBunny, SB.BadBunny, IRC.BadBunny, Ruby.BadBunny etc. It is also possible that when you read emails or surf the Internet you may get malware content downloaded or sent to you. In addition, SAMBA and NFS servers should be scanned periodically to check if they are infected.
Symantec Antivirus gives Real Time protection using Real Time scan whenever a file is accessed, modified, moved, renamed, copied, deleted, etc.
Symantec Antivirus for Linux also provides freedom to schedule periodic scans using Schedule Scans or On-Demand Scan. It scans all files on your machine based on the virus signatures loaded in the Antivirus.
