Re: Can....Ubuntu can be infected by a virus.
virus writers are pretarded. We learned all the basics needed to write viruses in my 1st quarter Introduction to programming class (covered a little C) sad. But there are a few "viruses" (more like petty annoyances) out there for linux. The chances of you ever seeing them is incredibly rare. Both avast and AVG linux scan for those. So the question really is, How paranoid are you?
