It seems that the University’s antivirus webpage has already changed. Now they are recommending that Windows users use Immunet from Sourcefire on machines that are owned by the University but which are not part of the Microsoft Campus agreement (there is a separate charge for that).
If you prefer not to use a cloud-based solution then the Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection 2012 mentioned in the previous blog entry is a relatively inexpensive solution.
It is possible to get a Microsoft Campus Agreement (software) license for approximately $70/year which includes an antivirus product from them if you prefer. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Linux users do not need to install antivirus software, since that platform is very seldom compromised that way.
