SpamAssassin doesn't have anything to do with the virus scanning.
Attachments are virus scanned regardless of size...

Are you sure that the attachment was in there with the virus?  I have
seen a lot of copies of this email come through some mailing lists, but
the attachments were stripped out of it.  In some cases, Spam Assassin
has scored it with 5.5, 5.4 and 3.2 fairly consistent, depending on the
mail headers, and when the attachment is left in place, it would not get
checked at all due to file size.
