I wouldn't worry at all if you use an Anti-virus, and are carefull what
From what I understand, due to the way that linux's inherit security is
laid out, a virus would only be able to do damage to non-essential
files, unless it somehow had root access to your files.
Correct me if i'm wrong, but wouldn't removing a linux virus involve
just scanning your home directory 99% of the time?
