It wouldn't affect linux.

First off, if it was written for windows, it probably wouldn't even run in linux.

Second off, you shouldn't run as a root user in linux. If you're not, then the chances of any malicious script even having access to important files is close to nil.

You won't have a virus problem with linux.
