Anti Virus

Hey everyone I was wondering if there was a need to have a AV inside a VM. My OS is Opensuse Leap 42.2 and I'm running Windows 7 Professional inside Virtual Box. Just curious I don't visit any naughty websites or download anything I'm not sure of.

Thanks

If you want to be protected, you should have an anti-virus program installed inside the VM.
