ClamAV is the only "offline" AV that I know of for OSX volumes. Norton has an online one and they probably have good driver security if there is a rootkit that blocks loading.

OSX has buffer overflows and sandbox escapes just like BSD, Linux, and Windows. It just has "jails" and signing policies for everything out of the box. You can do the same thing with local policies on Windows(Application Control Policies>AppLocker even on consumer Windows(enforces PKI CA use on all executables)) or by using a third-party sandbox...

NOTE: There has never been a signed malware for OSX.. Plenty of unsigned that came from unreliable sources or through exploits.
