If you must because of incoming mail try using ClamAV. Which a lot of
servers are readily able to integrate and unless you're dumb enough (and
this is just a subjective opinion) to allow elevated privileges without
knowing what the program is, or you run as root, you won't run into any
problems (normally ~ lets not forget the possible potential security
hole ~ it's happened before) with something jacking your system.  Even
though Linux is open too, if it's in the repo somebody manages it, so
you can always assume that software found in official repositories is safe.
