ClamAV shows me 3 infected files. I ran
clamscan -r, which showed 3 infected files. Next I ran
clamscan -v, which showed these files:
/initrd.img: Symbolic link /initrd.img.old: Symbolic link /vmlinuz: Symbolic link
I have no clue what these 3 files are and if they're even viruses or not. I did some searching on google, but only found out that these files have something to do with networking and (or) kernel updates. Also, I read that these files regenerate in the system. Grateful if anyone can help me clean these files.
During scan I did not have any mounted external drives. My system dual booted with windows 8.1 with Ubuntu as the primary boot partition, so unless I don't select Windows in the grub, the system automatically takes me to Ubuntu.
The scan output:
