There are Viruses that infect OTHER, typically giant viruses and they're called Virophages.

"Giant viruses" were themselves discovered in 2003 and their genome size was comparable to simple bacteria, and 2 to 3 times as complex as a normal virus.

The virophage, Sputnik, was strictly dependent on co-infection with a Mimivirus into an acanthomeba. Sputnik's infection hurts Mimivirus, making them 70% less infectious, making Sputnik akin to bacteriophages, hence the name virophage! A virus-virus!
