    Protection against Linux malware

      Does the Linux version of McAfee protect against Linux malware?

       

      My understanding is that it will detect Windows malware that is passing through a Linux machine whose role is to interact with other platforms, such as a file server or a mail server.  However, I can find no explicit statement on the McAfee website that the Linux version will also detect Linux malware.  I found one document that comes close to saying this, but I have to say it comes across as weasel words. 

       

      If we are to believe Wikipedia (Linux malware - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), McAfee does not detect Linux malware.

       

      Can you shed light on this?  If you are a McAfee contributor, I'm looking for some explicit documentation about this.
