Basically, what jailbreaking does is it allows you to use these two devices at their full potential, and helps to unleash their full capabilities. You can really customize them like crazy through jailbreaking, and it makes them more personal. It just makes the iPod Touch and iPhone that much more useful. It also allows you to download lots of free applications. An iPod Touch and iPhone would be pretty boring without a jailbreak, and thankfully it's legal.

If you are using 4.1 iOS, you can jailbreak it by downloading Limera1n onto your iPod or iPhone at Limera1n.com. It will instruct you on what to do from there, and it's really easy. Just make sure you backup your iPhone or iPod in iTunes first, by syncing it to your iTunes.

And does it have any viruses?

No, it doesn't have any viruses. One thing about jailbreaks for certain firmware, is you have to be careful not to jailbreak right after new firmware comes out. The new 4.2 iOS firmware has come out, and there still isn't a trustworthy jailbreak for it yet, because all the bugs have to be worked out. This is trustworthy one for the 4.1 iOS.
