5. No need of antivirus
Due to the strict file permission structure in Linux, you don’t need any antivirus in Linux. Most of the file comes up with 755 permission and we can even change the permission in Linux by chmod command. So, it has a very strict file security architecture which is a reason for no need of antivirus required in Linux.
