In General 3rd Party AV Software is Not Required as Mac OS X tends to look after itself.

I Mac user OSX 10.8.4 - our internet connection recently froze due to ransom ware. We are very careful in accessing dodgy emails or sites. Fortunately we have a good IT expert downstairs who unlocked our system and then installed Avasta anti-virus software.
We have been told that we don't need anti-virus protection for IMac. Is Avasta a decent anti-virus product??

Avast may have a feature that helps identify and block these sites, but I am not sure of its exact features; however, if in having encountered this site you are suspicious of items you may encounter, and are uncertain of how to identify malicious software, then an anti-malware scanner like Avast or others (I usually recommand Sophos Home Edition because it is relatively light-weight), can help you unroot and block potentially dangerous files.
