Flash is not free software. Do you even know what free software is? It's software where the source code is disclosed to the public and people are allowed to use and modify it without restrictions. Software that you get free of charge is called freeware, not free software.

hmmm, i wonder if there's such a program as can check downloads for viruses.
like that can keep the file quarantined, and then scan it, before commiting it to the hard drive.
sorta like i heard how there's a freeware out for keeping a program in a "program" quarantined, so why not a file.
or does most anti-virus stuff already do that?
i'm under the impression that anti-virus stuff usually only finds the little buggers after they're already in there. though idk.

If you want a free virus scanner for Linux, there is Clam AV. It comes on most Linux live CDs because they are used for rescuing computers that have been compromised. It's cross-platform (to my knowledge) and you can download it for free. Nessus is another free software program that is used to scan for web security threats. I don't know much about Ubuntu, but in Debian, I can install software fairly easily through the Synaptic package manager. I think Ubuntu has something equivalent to that, since it's based on Debian.
