Fedora Core 3 is flashing around a shiny new software firewall, maybe you could look if theres a port of that for your distro or upgrading if you're just playing with linux. You could also look at a hardware firewall, much nicer For ati-virus, I've heard good thigns about clamav but a Google search should help.
