There is NOT always a best <fill in the blank> - There is usually one that best fits your particular needs, not necessarily mine.

clamav is used by a large number of systems, it fits their needs, you may want to look at it too-
Clam AntiVirus

I don't think it's open source, so in that sense it doesn't really fit with your original question. I believe it's not available for Unix anyhow -- this is a Unix board, you know? Clam and F-Prot (commercial, not open source) are popular on Unix-based platforms, there are certainly others as well but you should really explain what you want it for if you want more than just a list of names and subjective "yea" or "nay" votes.
