mmm the problem here If you download copyright material from public trackers, you may get notice from your ISP as a warning. They usually sent three warnings before suspending your account. Even worse, you may get notice directly from Hollywood guys on copyright infringement. Companies like MPAA or RIAA also spy on internet for copyright infringement. They may send you notice with a fat pay-up to settle things.

if you want to download public torrents in USA, you may use a VPN. It creates a secure tunnel between your computer and its server. It sends encrypted data from this tunnel. Hence, your ISP cannot see your activities; it can only see bandwidth you are consuming, amount of data you are transmitting and that you are using a VPN. In addition, it masks your IP with a new IP; hence, your IP would not be traceable.

About virus; In a word, "no." "Any computer that is attached to a network is not immune to viruses. But, as with everything else, it's relative. If you compare the vulnerability of Linux to Windows, you can understand why so many say Linux is immune. But before we get into any myth busting, let's examine just what a computer virus is."
