Define a virus
Years ago I read an editorial about define standards for a virus and on each and every point, Microsoft Windows ITSELF met the criteria pefectly.   Just to keep things in perspective and now the Linux people can laugh.

Re: Define a virus
Looks like Linux-based Android isn't doing so well, security-wise. The recent Bluetooth and KRACK flaws hit Android much harder than both Windows and iOS, and were patched later. The "many eyes" notion has failed in high-profile ways recently as well, with several long-standing bugs affecting Linux going unnoticed for over a decade.
