Have you considered updating MailScanner and Clamav? Both are pretty
easy upgrades and I would seriously recommend it.

Are you having problems detecting zips that are infected with
worm.sco.a? I think this is a different issue than the one that could be
fixed by adding "--unzip" to the clamav wrapper. That was a problem with
corrupt zip headers...this is something different. I think everyone is
still trying to figure it out. Stay tuned.
