Anti-virus pioneer Alan Solomon thinks anti-virus is dead. He uses Linux instead


British anti-virus pioneer Dr Alan Solomon is so convinced that AV software no longer works that he gave up using it a “long time ago” and solved his security worries by moving from Windows to Linux, the iconic figure has said in a blog.

John McAfee rubbishing the software that still carries his name was one thing but Solomon’s more clinical disassembly of an industry he helped create in the 1990s with Dr Solomon’s highly-regarded Anti-Virus Toolkit (bought by Network Associates in 1998 for $642 million) is more like a well-aimed punch in the solar plexus.
