Check out for the
avp anti-virus program for linux. It scans for dos,windows and office
macro viruses on your shares on your linux/samba box. I've been using
it for a month and has wiped out our macro virus problem. I just set
it up as a cron job.

You do have to rename the definition files to all uppercase when you
get it.
