Yes a kernel upgrade fixed THAT ONE. But may I remind you that you
really need to google something before you spout nonsense.
This is why ignorance of a user of ANY operating system is bad. Very bad.
Iv'e been in this game a long time. I know linux is vulnerable to
viruses. Sure, there are fewer than windows, but that doesn't mean that
there are NONE. I manage HPC systems for the Federal Government and on
each and every one of those I have an AV package that runs and monitors
everything. I'd be begging to get fired if I just assumed those systems
would never get a virus 'because there are none'.
