If you click the link there in the PC Viruses box, and read on, it explains how OS X scans downloads and warns you of a download containing an application. Which, in my use of OS X, it does do that.
Apple is pretty misleading with the "...without any work on your part" sentence though. I don't like it.
I have been using ESET's NOD32 for quite some time now and havent seen any real resource hits.
When people ask me what I do, I tell them I run ESET; even if it will just pick up on malware people have on their flash drives when they plug it into my Mac to transfer something. It may just help in the spread of malware by doing that, so it's worth it.....even if it was slightly more than zero work on my part.
