There are no open ports during install unlike windows.  Once installed
you can setup a firewall "sudo apt-get install firestarter", which is
the best thing to do.
Viruses are neigh on  unheard of in Linux.  Yes they do exist,  but
there are 200+ for Linux and how many 1000's for windows.  You can
install clamtk in order to check for viruses.
