PC Virus scanning on *nix side?

I use Sophos Antivirus on the companies Solaris 2.6 samba server and our
Mandrake Linux 6.0 MARS-NWE server. Sophos has both a server and client
side to it. It works very well. You get monthly updates on CD and
you can also subscribe to their email virus notification system. You
will then be notified when they have created a new virus identification
file that you can use to update your server between monthly updates.
These Virus IDE files tend to come out at a rate of about 3 or 4 a week.

I'm just wondering what some of you are using for virus scanners -- a scan
of all of our shares indicated the presence of several viruses.  It would
be nice if our Samba server (running on Linux) could do periodic scans and
then take some kind of corrective action (clean/remove virus or at least
e-mail the administrator).
