The main point is that even in the case of a definite virus, it should ask what to do, not just delete files without asking. (Secondarily, it shouldn't flag some program as a virus just because of "certain sequences of x86 code which resembles that used by popular viruses".) No virus checker on the Amiga that I have ever used or heard of does this.
