I agree to the why?
...but if you must, try
      Code:
apt-cache search antivirus

and then apt-get whatever you think you need

The fonts may be be Russian, Chinese, or any.
Does not look like virus.

I'm using GNU/Linux distros for more than 2 years. I never met a virus. I think there is no need to install an antivirus.

The only time you'd need a Linux-based A/V is when serving email for Windows clients. Such an antivirus will strip infected attachments from emails and block spam

Yes, and maybe if you have a dual boot and if you share a partition with a windows system.

Touche

I don't dual boot, but I do have a server that share files to windows machines. Seems I do need an antivirus

you can use clamAV for protecting your PC against viruses - it also has a nice frontend called KlamAV.
In combination with chkrootkit and clamav-daemon it's a nice and free replacement for commercial Linux AV.
Apropos commercial, a nice alternative is also KAV4WS (Kaspersky AntiVirus for Workstations).

Yandex.ru is, indeed, suspicious service. Half of its content is spam. But I don't think that it may be dangerous for Linux system.

While it is more dificult for a properly set up and properly used Linux system to be infected with viruses/spyware/malware, it is not impossible. Also, any dual/multiboot system with ANY version of Windows on it needs an antivirus program, especially if Windows is allowed to connect to the internet.

Clamav can scan Windows partitions from Aptosid.

One can always use antivirus in W$ only and scan regularly.
In case you are running W$ too.

If I have to use antivirus in Linux, why use Linux?
