    Should there be, or is there an anti-virus program running on Google TV?

    The inability to install software makes it almost axiomatically impossible to be affected by viruses. At this time, it is only possible through physical access, even then you'd need to manually enter the recovery mode for the virus to take hold. After the Android Market becomes available, however, is another story. You're going to need to exercise common sense and due diligence if you're going to avoid installing an application with a Trojan Horse. Especially, since the applications are not curated.

    Anti-virus on open source software is a joke. Just be smart.
