Liam Proven is quite right to recommend you do your own research before 
asking for help. But as a professional language teacher I know that 
Usenet imposes on all users an obligation to completely master English 
at the native speaker level, and I think I detect a language 
comprehension problem here. So I offer the following reply to your 
request for information:

1. Scanning for malware is not a requirement but only a courtesy. It is 
unlikely that an user of any operating system other than Windows will be 
as diligent in keeping their anti-virus program completely up-to-date, 
so it is unlikely to be very thorough or helpful. But some of us try to 
be helpful, but I don't. It is up to Windows users to scan their own 
incoming messages.

2. Unix-based operating systems require a password to access their root. 
For years Microsoft gained an enormous share of the operating system 
market by not requiring a password, i. e., by making installation of 
Windows easy. Its long-suffering purchasers accepted as a cost of doing 
business the eradication of malware and regular re-installation of their 
contaminated operating system.

Since Unix-based systems don't require anti-virus protection, AV 
software is unnecessary and burdensome. Of course, there is malware that 
could infect your personal user files, but not your root system. Of 
course, you could be lured into betraying your password in installing 
software from a contaminated source, so caution in acquiring software is 

I myself have never encountered such malware, nor has anyone I know 
personally. I do not remember reading about infestation in this forum. 
So it is not a big worry, but possible.
