Generally when you are installing software onto a Linux computer, it's from officially maintained repositories. Me and Setro use Arch Linux (and manjaro which is basically the same) which uses a set of repositories called core, extra, community, multilib, and aur. All of these are moderated.

However, if you are using something debian based, there is the possibility that you could get a virus, due to the fact that you must manually add repositories in many cases that are sometimes not from official sources.

If OP told us what drivers he needed to update then we could give him something specific.

This, this, a thousand times this.

Never trust any driver updating software. No matter how legit it may seem, the only reason they exist is to get money out of people who are too stupid to do it themselves. It's always better to just install them on your own, and only update when something breaks.

Seriously.

It doesn't take much to go to the hardware manufacturer's website and click on "DRIVERS".
