The path for LINUX users is "
" starting in the directory where you expanded the content of UBCD.

Under that directory, there are scripts to update the antivirus definitions included in UBCD.

Any other script / tool / whatever to update and use the antivirus, it is probably part of the Linux distro / Clam-related packages you might be using.
