Norton360 cannot find a virus, but ClamAV does

This concerns an Excel file, which I have filled with data and which I have scanned individually with my installed Norton 360 and which has been passed as Clean.  I have uploaded it to "Express Hosting" - which host my web site, which contains this Excel file.  All new files going on to their system are scanned with "ClamAV" and which has rejected this Excel file - the subsequent log file displays this information -

Please advise why Norton 360 cannot find this virus, yet ClamAV does?

Incidentally, I did try to download ClamAV, but Norton360 rejected it.

Re: Norton360 cannot find a virus, but ClamAV does

As an update - The AV claims it has found the following exploit within the file "Xls.Exploit.EmbeddedFlash-1", It seems to be related to this exploit - https://www.fireeye.com/blog/threat-research/2016/05/cve-2016-4117-flash-zero-day.html
