Linux and Viruses Explained
Attack and shut down Linux or Unix related servers most likely shut down a virus means of getting to another machine. Windows servers that makes up under 30 percent of the servers in The Internet. If all Windows Servers are shut down in The Internet. The Internet will still be operating. No point writing a virus if it stops itself from spreading. Common sense. So common sense would say do not attack Linux.
Next factor how much cash is required to place a effective anti-virus system on Linux or Unix related. ClamAV plus other third party software to provide real time scanning of all kinds of things for free thinking almost all the third party is open source. Man power is the only cost. Power to react to any attack exists. NewsForge | Linux and Viruses Explained
