The Linux kernel has firwalling built in.. so all you need it to
configure it.. If you did a standard type of install then the "lokkit"
applicvation should be there.. This is a basic tool so run it and setup
your firewall.. when you get more into it you can manually modify the
firewall rules but that will get you started..

As for AV, there are some around.. just google for them and see what
suites your needs..
