Is this loading the system with viruses intentional or just a security laps that will be rectified?

I think it's warning you that it detected a possible bitcoin miner. This is probably because some software surreptitiously ships with cryptocoin miners which waste a persons computer resources without them being aware.

But anyway, that isn't the case with bitcoin itself. So you probably should report this to AV software as a false positive.
