    The short answer is no. The question of "are there viruses and spyware on Linux" has been asked many times on this forum. If you want more information, I suggest you go to the "Search" option at the top of this forum, pick the "Linux Security" forum, and do a search for the keyword "virus". There are at least 30 threads that deal with this sort of thing.
