any security risks with the following: drive c partitioned with 64 bit xp and 64 bit ubuntu with wine installed.
ubuntu has firestarter and clam av, windows has antivir.
both behind a router.
i can play world of warcraft, lord of rings on line, age of conan, call of duty online, and after tonight (hopefully) my steam games through wine, they are all online games, is there a risk using wine to access programs from my shared program files? or is it safer?
thanks.

It's perfectly safe running though Wine. If you get any security issues (I can't think of any at the moment) just delete Wine and reinstall it.

ok, thanks for the reply, i think im having problems getting my head round my games running with no scanners etc, it is very refreshing though.
thanks again.
