The author of the manuscript linked to at "Read More"  in your post is bodhi.zazen.  He helped me when I was a newbie running ubuntu 9.04.  Very reputable.  And second only to techieMoe, in my opinion, in helpfulness to me, personally.  Of course, I am biased by my experience base . . .

Much of what's needed to secure Ubuntu is in the Software Manager. ClamTK, rkhunter & chrootkit are the options that I use. However to get the latest version of ClamTK virus scanner, it's available from the clamtk site (version 5.05). For Ubuntu, as well as other OS's built on it's platform, such as Linux Mint, it's the 3rd option under Downloads.


It's much newer & more configurable than the one from the Software Manager.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
