That is a web site / url. What makes you think it affected your computer ? What abnormal behavior are you seeing ?

I did some search on google about

  • cheetah
  • volz
  • malware
  • spyware
  • virus
  • hoax

I did not find any result that indicates me that there is a malware with that name. Or even a hoax about a virus with that name. Can you provide more info?

In general, I can said that usually those malware/spyware/virus do not make their way into linux. This is not 100% secure due the user running software that it is not sure of its origin or some emulation software that can be affected by the foreign application.
