That is ... incorrect.
There are viruses for Linux, and though as a normal user it is most likely only that user's profile might be infected, as root the same virus could kill the system, having total access to the entire file system.
As far as pron goes, I'd tell you how my friend obtained his library, but I doubt that's appropriate for this forum.
