There are a few worms and such for linux, but most of them are more "proof of concept" than they are "in the wild". It's much more difficult to write an effective virus for linux than for Windows in general. I think there are about 50 viruses.
As for spyware, there really isn't anything out there; at the moment, it remains a Windows problem.There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
