yup... I don't know what AV he's running,  I contacted him off-list
'cause every attachment I sent triggered that... I explained him, in
plain Spanish, that he should not be bouncing viruses or spams 'cause
originating addresses for real viruses and spams are 99.9% fake, but
he doesn't...

The 'heuristic' applied, apparently, is the double extension
thingie... but much less specific... kinda, if it has 2 dots in it, it
is a virus :-(
