Yes, but most of the end user softwares for linux are free and opensource so, there are no chances that contributers would intentionally put viruses into it. With the help of a large community there are authentic and secure softwares and installation guides available, which reduces the chance of users installing malware. Whereas in windows, users are lured into installing viruses, with title of free - cracked, hacked softwares.
