[ubuntu-studio-devel] Antivirus, code / app content scanning.

Hello Ubuntu studio crew

I have had positive malware scans after installing everything in the past,
using the av included in the Ubuntu studio distribution. It appeared to be
part of a worm but incomplete, found on an app directory.  Maybe a false
positive back then,  i didn't pay much attention as it seemed inoffensive
and i was testing app installs and reformatted often the systems.

This brings up one point I would like to ask opinions and understand the
current process.

What is the process in place for scanning code, compiled code, apps,
content found inside files using multiple levels of compression, etc.

To help push use of Ubuntu studio distribution as a desktop computer
replacement for Windows,  can we have one day an av and firewall turned on
right out of the bat after installing?
...maybe by proposing the option "Turn on AV,  Firewall"  during the
installation process.
