Baffled as to why my company failed the UK's assessment for not having anti-virus on . It was a hard fail.

Never come across this before - and last year we passed despite explicitly stating no antivirus on linux machines.

Assessors are

iasme.co.uk/

Anybody else come across this?

@athairbirb I'm just going to install something as a box-ticking exercise (will check out clamAV); I'm a bit more interested as to why they think linux systems need antivirus in order to be secure. Perhaps I've been naive?!

@davidoclubb I don't know all the details, obviously. So this is a best guess, so take it with a pinch of salt.

I can see where they're coming from - Linux isn't impervious to virus' and if you're using Windows in your infra as well, using Linux with no AV could be a potential infection vector for your MS infra.

It's tenuous, but not out of the realms of possibility.
