No. Viruses are not a threat to Gnu/Linux.
The software is source-based. That means that such vulnerabilities
are fixed, not just scanned and avoided. Windows is binary-compatible
which means that if they actually fixed the vulnerability, something
would break and some other software would stop working.
Just keep up-to-date with software updates. That's the only thing
you need to do to keep safe.
