I want to know if my thoughts on linux virus defense are accurate so I can post said thoughts on another forum.
A virus in linux should cause fairly little damage (compared to Windows) due to permissions. If user doesn't have the permission to do something in a directory and the virus is executed as user would that still be true?
As far as I'm aware, thats true. The most you could lose is $home while running as the default user. Thats part of the reason why you should never log in as root.
