Do these names have to match the name as reported by the virus scanners?
or is it case insensitive?

i.e., will:

Virus:   mydoom    no

prevent mydoom from being quarantined when caught by either sophossavi
or uvscan?

or do I need to do this? :

Virus:   W32/MyDoom-A      no
Virus:   W32/Mydoom.a at MM   no
