This is funny!! I have till date (in the last 10 years) never seen a
virus file replicating on Linux!! Are you sure it came from the
pen-drive and not were already present??

Because, by logic and theory, the executable on the pen-drive CANNOT
execute on Linux. A windows executable CANNOT run on Linux.

There is something fishy here!
