BitDefender AntiVirus for Samba

BitDefender AntiVirus for Samba protects Samba servers running under Linux from viruses and other malware. It's configured for "On-Access" scanning of the files that are copied to or are accessed from the Samba file server's shared partitions. BitDefender claims 100% detection rate for all viruses in the wild (ITW) through its powerful scanning engines certified by Virus Bulettin in April 2005.
