My point is not that APT and/or Debian is bullet-proof (I live under no
delusion in this respect). Just that instead of keeping your A/V
up-to-date, the GNU/Linux approach to protecting oneself from attacks is
to keep your OS up-to-date.
PS: I guess that means I should have pointed to `unattended-upgrades`
rather than to `apt` as the solution that corresponds to an anti-virus.
