Pretty much the same.  OS X is mostly not bothered by viruses or other malware. However, the ones that usually rise to the top at iavntivirus from PCTools, clamxv, and macscan.  Macscan specifically targets non-virus spyware and malware since that seems to be the main spot that any malware seems to affect the mac.
