Recently did a full system scan with Kaspersky IS, and wondered how 342 threats were undetected until now. I checked and it seems to be from the 2020.3 Kali Installer ISO. Never knew that it was this dangerous :D

You may share this on their forum or contact support to be sure if the detections are correct or false positives.
Someone already reported 2020.1, and doubt that me reporting 2020.3 would do anything/take up unnecessary space and time.
Kali is full of exploiting tools, don't know why you even surprised.
I'm aware that it contains a lot of tools, but thought that it would show up as one or two warnings saying that it contains a huge amount of bad stuff, rather than showing up as 342 individual objects. I removed the file nonetheless, even if it would have been a nuisance and not an actual threat to me. If any single file shows up with a huge amount of infections(>20), then the first thought I get is that it's a false positive, considering that it's unlikely to have that many infections at the same time.

Pretty much this and Kaspersky is actually reporting the individual number of objects correctly.

Considering that Kali Linux is an "Advanced Penetration Testing Linux distribution", I really dont know what is the point of this thread.
