There are multiple reasons for this –
  • Linux gives very low access to its users. If there is a virus attack, only a few files will be corrupted not the whole system.
  • It is less vulnerable because a user needs complete execution rights for opening even an email attachment.
  • The working environment in Linux is segmented in different environments like Ubuntu, Arch, Linux Mint, etc. This division gives much protection from the virus.
  • Linux uses Iptables which requires advanced privileges to function.
