Install BitDefender on Linux / Ubuntu

I recently needed to install BitDefender on a Linux VM devbox. There doesn’t seem to be any up to date instructions on the web, so here’s what worked for me.

In the terminal:

sudo su
vim /etc/apt/sources.list

Add this line:

deb [trusted=yes] bitdefender non-free

Save and close the file. (:wq)

To sign the repo and install the software:

apt-key add bd.key.asc

apt-get update
apt install install bitdefender-scanner-gui

BitDefender can now be run from the Desktop.
