    None is needed, since there are no known viruses for Windows Phone.

    As far as I know, no antivirus is required for WP.

    The antivirus is supplied by Microsoft's Windows Phone Store - all apps are checked and scanned before they hit your phone, so there is no need for your phone to have any anti-virus apps.

    Internet Explorer on the phone won't allow scripts to access any data on your phone. If you happen to hit a page with a malicious script, the most that will happen is the page will crash.

    Yeah, just one more reason why WP rocks. I hate how anitvirus apps slow down any system they are installed on.
