i think we have explained more than enough Steven, this is NOT a virus
you have. there are no viruses that infects kubuntu, ok?
you are having a networking issue, an internet issue, maybe you have a
misconfigured ethernet card in your computer. you clearly have something
not correct in your network, but this in NO way is a virus, so stop
wasting your time trying to install an antivirius that will remove
something that doesn't even exist, and be shocked your network is still
