Hi Ahmed,

First off, get the most recent distro of Fedora (currently 23). That reduces the risk.

Second, any virus that targets Linux or a managed platform like java that you run from linux, might hurt you. No system is without fault. MS Windows targeted virusses you should be safe from, unless you use Wine.

In order to be safe you need safe guards. One of the measures you could (and should) take is installing something like tripwire or AIDE. Do that, whether you suspect problems or not. They alert you when something weird is going on. Without these tools, any number of virusses, rootkits etc could be working in your system without you knowing it.

Having said all that, I have no knowledge of movies being contaminated. As far as I know, movies should be safe. Still, install safeguards.

Kind regards, Guus.
