The default in ubuntu is UFW: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Uncomplicated_Firewall_ufw

Honestly, you dont need a firewall because it is very very hard to give yourself a virus. Unless you are running server services, there really is no need.

I would highly suggest a read of this thread here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=510812
