"don’t need to install any kind of antivirus because it is hard to get viruses on linux"

Ahh, the overconfidence of youth...

I'll add that to my collection of quotes from other people who doomed themselves to learning things the hard way.

"I don't have to update my system regularly because I have a firewall."

"I don't need two-factor authentication - my normal password is safe enough."

"Nobody else uses my PC, so it's okay to use autofill for all my credentials."

"Once a month is often enough for my backups."

"I'll commit that tomorrow morning."

"Nobody will ever hit my IP. I'm behind NAT."

"Nobody will ever know this URL."
