This is due to the design of the base system, which basically makes it impossible for a Windows-style virus to do anything.

Anyhow, to get ClamAV working, the SlackBuild should work: https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/system/clamav/
The Slackbuild does work. Download, make the changes to users and groups and build it. Install it and run it. It works for me but can't detect a wet sock in a washing machine. I have had viruses in emails that claim to have been scanned by clamav and come up clean. F-Prot for linux catches them for me
