Re: Linux infected ?

It still has the same permissions as any other process by that user.  There are a few viruses that can infect elf binaries when running from a windows host, so it's not all that isolated based on execution platform.

It may attempt to infect the other programs you installed with wine.
It shouldn't be able to modify any of your Linux program that you have

Try scanning your .wine directory like this:
$ clamscan -ri ~/.wine
