I have no doubt this is a false positive but if the OP really believes
it is then let him argue this point with the kernel devs since it is
supposedly a virus hooked into a kernel module. Maybe they can let the
OP know it is a false positive.
I keep trying to get the viral scsi driver to install, but mkinitrd returns this:
Error: scsi.virus.ko requires ndiswrapper >= 1.53

Well going to the kernel developers and telling them that they have a virus in the code isn’t going to do anything. He needs to contact avg and tell them about this, I just don’t think that it’s possible. Since:
A: he’s the only one to report it.
B: With all the distros out there and people that are likely to scan, why hasn’t it popped up for anyone else.
He needs to start by getting the company to verify the virus.
