Depending on your basic knowledge of Linux there's really only two ways to address this:
0) it's a question about Linux and viruses or
1) you really meant to ask "What do I need to do to keep my Linux installation safe?"
If it's the first then that's addressed by the replies given, if it's the latter then start reading your distributions basic user documentation (and maybe "rute user's tutorial and exposition") and its admin / security documentation after which you'll be able to ask more specific questions. Because while viruses do not affect Linux but that doesn't mean you don't have to be aware of things and it also doesn't mean you don't have the responsibility to actively keep things secure.
