Re: I have a question regarding viruses
Viruses for Linux are extremely rare, such that in general, you do not need AV protection. I would be surprised if a LOT of folks actually encountered virus infection; more likely, they encountered performance or instability problems that they presumed were caused by viruses.
As to finding the virus and deleting it, that requires running a Linux based AV product, and unlike with MS Windows, there are very few of those around (largely, because they're not needed).
Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 17.3; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
