Where is the Free Linux?

Hi. I can't find the Free Linux version to download.

I do not see it on this page. Has it been removed?

    Yep, it's gone with the wind. Sophos has chosen to discontinue the free version of their Linux antivirus. This was confirmed in the Server protection forum as of July 2.


    If you really need to have an antivirus on your Linux box, then your options are:

    • Either Comodo (looks free so far, proprietary) or ClamAV (free, open source). Just be aware that, according to an old test by AV Test, Comodo's Linux detection rate is worse than poor while ClamAV is better (when compared to Comodo) but not even close to Sophos' detection rate.
    • Or, get a license from Sophos (paid, proprietary).


    It's very unfortunate but that's the problem with proprietary freeware. You never know until when you can keep on using it.
