Customising is OK if you only use one scanner but if you use multiple
scanners then you end up having to put in potentially as many entries as
you have scanners for each virus.

It is case sensitive, You really should customise this list to the exact
output from your virus scanner.

But on the assumption that most people don't, I'll change to
case-insensitive so the default list does something sensible on more
