Probably not. Since Kaspersky isn't that good, and OSX has maybe 10k viruses total.

Besides, before any downloaded app will open, you'll need to provide your admin password, so even if something gets downloaded from somewhere unnoticed and tries to run, you can simply block it by pressing 'Cancel'.

The only virus like thing I've come across in my 2 years Mac support was a mac version of that AntiVirus 2010 thing that pops in with warnings and wants you to buy it for 90 bucks. On windows it's quite a pain to get rid of it, but on the mac it simply consisted of dragging it to the trash and then emptying the trash...

Lastly, if you still want an antivirus app I'd suggest you look into ClamAV. I think it's in fact free.

ESET would probably be worth it, I use it on Windows. Asking for serials is illegal, just pointing that out. ClamAV is a worthy, free alternative, but does it do realtime scanning? I thought it didn't.
