Antivirus configurator on yast2 security panel right next to the firewall.

It should allow to configure several engines and allow to set automatic scans, updates, launch scans for defined folders etc.

It should also provide some easy autoconfigurator for apparmor as a behavioral antivirus.

That is also easy for beginners.

It would be nice to have YAST manage the AntiVirus protection as a frontend with say CLAM AntiVirus as a backend.  It could also be another AV backend? 

As for a frontend to CLAM AV, the KLAM AV is reliant on KDElib3 packages which is not a great thing when using KDE-4 or GNOME etc (yes there is CLAM TK and others)  Could this YAST module also not be linked into APPARMOUR?  Not sure, just a thought?

As linux and Opensuse become more widely used the threat of viruses will only increase and we should not be caught out. OpenSUSE should have a policy and means of dealing with this.

Or are we already 100% ready on the AV front and I'm just ignorant?

Imho, this kind of configuration module in Yast would be very useful. Especially if combined with multiple threatmanagementapplications, like fail2ban, rkhunter, clamav, amavisd, apparmor, selinux, firewall, etc, etc.

Most of the current applications (KlamAV, ClamTk) are aimed at the end-user, a systemwide configurator would really be very desirable.
