Follow the links. I didn't look at every link to viral material. But I looked at several. And I didn't see a single linux problem mentioned. But they sure seemed eager enough to sell something. Just in case.
The real problem in the future won't be anything they can sell a product to overcome. The real problem will be related to lazy users bringing bad habits with them and logging in as 'root' fulltime. In that vein, a virus could take hold and spread. But in that vein, who would need a virus when script kiddies could own the whole machine?
