AntiVirus app for Windows Phone 8

Just bought a new Lumia. Quite happy with this. However I was wondering if any AntiVirus is required for WP8? If yes Please give link to the available apps on store.

 

Thanks

Re: AntiVirus app for Windows Phone 8

Well that answers my question to certain extent. Thanks for the quick reply.

My two major concerns for a virus/malware threat were

1. While transferring files to/from PC using USB

2. While browsing the net

 

The link to the thread was helpful & answered my first concern. But what about virus risk over the web. Is IE10 in WP8 secure? Does it recieve security updates from Microsoft? Or do I need some app to make my browsing more secure?
