Neighbour just purchased Webook with Umbuntu as O/S, is there a firewall and does he need antivirus

ubuntu has a built in firewall and as for antivirus it is up to the user ,linux is much more secure than windows as you are just a user and you need to be logged in to root to alter the main kernel,there are not many viruses about for linux compared to windows.
clamav is a antivirus
