Looks like this is part of the Gerasim project.

Double-check those files with a service like virustotal - that checks them against multiple virus databases.

Most BOINC virus 'detections' turn out to be false alarms: they are reported by virus checkers using "heuristics" - looking at the program's behaviour, rather than any actual payload.

Yes, I do a scan for virii about once a month and I have had the occasional red flag from parts of the cpdn code. As my box only runs Linux a Windows virus is very unlikely to affect it anyway but a couple of times I have been able to alert people sending me emails that they have a problem.
