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 -
ClamAV detected virus = [Xls.Exploit.EmbeddedFlash-1

Please advise why Norton 360 cannot find this virus, yet ClamAV does?
Incidentally, I did try to download ClamAV, but Norton360 rejected it.
