Is Linux machines Immune to virus?????

Hi Folks,

Every body of us have heard that Linux machines are Immune to viruses.
But, the truth is NOOOOOO.....

Yeah, every computer system is subject to virus attacks.

But, the impact of virus will not be as much as in a windows machine(good news).
Because of the superuser permissions of linux systems.

So, your linux machine will be immune to viral system if you know what to run.
Especially, when giving permission for something to run.
