You DON'T need an antivirus on Linux.

The only valid reason for which you might WANT an antivirus is if you 
Linux machine is serving files via, for example, SMB, to a Windows 
network. In that case, the antivirus can be used to check files that are 
stored on the server for Windows viruses.

At this moment, there are no significant viruses active on Linux.
