    It doesn't really matter, it's just data at rest so use any anti-malware software you like and point it at the mounted drive. We do this in work in a dual boot machine with McAfee and Sophos, and although the format is different for sophos updates the signatures both use are the same for Linux as they are for Windows. McAfee can even be updated by using the DAT files from the windows client's update files or an updated Windows client.
