Do you need AntiVirus/AntiMalware for a Ubuntu 12.10 64bit?

Just wondering thanks!
Also what's the worse that could happen if the user is running non-root on Ubuntu 12.10 and no AntiVirus?

No. The fact is, that 99.9% Ubuntu users never had any problems with malware.

Moreover, running non-root and without an antivirus is the standard practice.

If you want even more security, use AppArmor
