I believe they are all new as far as a general release goes. The combination
doesn't need fixing if you translate the above strings and place them in
your languages.conf file. The reason for the change is the old behavior
always sent a message to the postmaster stating a virus had been detected,
regardless of the actual problem. Now the notice will state the actual
problem, or problems (if multiple, such as bad content and virus). If you
add the strings listed above you will see how it works. For example once the
strings are properly installed the noticeprefix:noticevirusinfected line
above will read (using English defaults)

        The following e-mails were found to have: Virus Detected

And if there were a virus detection and an unacceptable file name detected
in the same message it would read:

        The following e-mails were found to have: Virus Detected, Bad Filename

Hopefully I explained that clear enough to answer your question?
