@OP: SCAR does not contain a virus, the false positive is the result of the usage of the UPX file packer and other tools on SCAR which shrinks the filesize of the main file. You're perfectly safe. However, I suggest you try the SCAR Divi 3.25 Beta I recently released, though it's not 100% finished and may still contain a few bugs, but it's quite stable and it should be fully backwards compatible with the 3.22 release with a few non-important exceptions. It is different from any previous release and packed differently, so it should not give any false positive.
