Gnu/Linux (and then Ubuntu) is one of most security system in the world. All you have to do is just to stay calm. You haven't something special to do for protect your system, is secure alredy now. The viruses on Linux are really few and they don't work now because they are too old and the problem that they used was solved, here is a list:
