Have a look at this page.
I have been using linux for eleven years, never had a virus.
I gave up using an operating system which required a virus scanner and anti malware program and their constant updates.
Linux is secure by design, ie users run with reduced privileges, programs have controlled access to other programs
Windows programs have full access, making exploits difficult to stop.
Total linux viruses in 20 years, less than ten.
Windows, over one million and rising daily
