Just FYI, you don't really need the ';' at the end of each line like
you do in perl. I don't think it does any harm, except that it might
confuse you or someone else looking over your source. You might
start putting spaces in variable assignments like: blah = "whatever";
as you would in perl! :-)

you heard about -eq not eq...

you could shorten this if clause to
[ -z "$infectionsDetected" } && rm -f $logPath/$infectedLogName
I think it would be a little more efficient.

[ -f "$logPath/$logName" -a -w "$logPath/$logName" ] && rm $logPath/$logName
