How to scan DOS/Windows files for virus under Linux

Extracted from debian-list
Tip provided by Robert Woodcock

Mcafee virrusscan

I looked at this yesterday.  It appears to be an a.out executable.  I
don't have a.out/libc4 anymore, and I suspect I'm not alone.  Are you
aware of a newer version?  It would be nice to have a virus scanner on
my Linux machine, since I receive a lot of Windoze e-mail attachments
and have several Samba shares.

mercury:~$ ldd /usr/lib/neta/uvscan
    libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5 (0x4000c000)

That's what's in ftp://ftp.nai.com/pub/antivirus/unix/linux/nlxb318e.tar

A debian installer package of the
aforementioned Virusscan product is available at:
