    If you bother to read the posts above, you'll understand why it can still do some damage. Viruses are just programs, like any other one. If a windows program running under wine can delete files, a windows virus under wine can also do the same. They are the same. As I said many times, it will run with the userid of the user that is running wine, which means that it can only affect the files that are writtable by that user.

    That's why I advised to run wine on a separate user accound. So, you will not accidentally screw up your documents and the stuff in your home dir.

    They can't infect linux binary files, but they can erase and mess up things from within wine. And if run as root that means to completelly screw you up.
