Comodo Antivirus on Linux – Installation ( CentOS )

Background

At a certain point in my life, I dealt a bit with helping friends remove viruses from their computers.

I have a couple of Linux boxes in our lab environment.

Every few weeks I tinker with them a bit.

I am running Clavam as my baseline desktop AV tool.
