You're being too PC.

To be honest, you really do not need to worry about it as much as you do in Windows.

Generally, you don't have to be very worried about security! A virus scanner is helpful if you're sharing files with a Windows machine, but other than that you're all good. Just don't pirate anything and you won't have any trojans. That's all there is to it!
