    No, the iPod Touch does not come with anti-virus software. The iPod Touch is based on Mac OS X which is a pretty secure operating system (yeah, there are the occassional demos of possible viruses, but I haven't see an actual Mac virus in the wild for years). I'm not going to say it's impossible (jailbreaking wouldn't be possible without an exploit), but it pretty unlikely.

    Worst case scenario - you get a virus. You just do a restore and you're back to factory settings...
