Hi

Dont run as root and you wont be affected. There are very few of these stuff around for linux. Avoid running any background services or software you dont actually need.

No you cannot run windows viruses in wine. If you dont they wont work

if you dont run unnecessary stuff a personal firewall is not required

regards
