It would just contain
FromOrTo:       default         Yaha BugBear Klez

or else
FromOrTo:       *@*             Yaha
FromOrTo:       *@*             BugBear
FromOrTo:       *@*             Klez

or else even
FromOrTo:       *@*             Yaha BugBear
FromOrTo:       *@*             Klez

But the first form will be slightly quicker as it can look them all up at
once. There is no limit to the length of each line, so you can list dozens
of viruses on each line if you want to.
