    Long story short, you can whitelist Virtualbox, avast is being overzealous in this case. There are no backdoor running in Kali, so there is nothing to worry about.

    Fortinet is known to block tool updates.

    Yes, there are some tools that can be classified as malware such as backdoor factory (that can create backdoors) and a few others. If you find that on a end-user systen, yes, there is something to worry about but Kali is a pentesting distro, so this is expected. There are also false positive with tools detected as "Hacktool/NAMEOFTOOL".
