Silent viruses are silent in logs as well?

I have this:

Jul  2 17:37:49 vmx10 MailScanner[12118]:
 Infection: W32/Sobig.E at mm
Jul  2 17:37:49 vmx10 MailScanner[12118]: Virus Scanning: F-Prot found
virus W32/Sobig.E at mm

And as you know, i posted my silent list yesterday, this is in my silent
list also. So no, i dont think its not reporting those. In my case it
certainly is....
