Spaces is a very old virus and, according to Sophos's site, spreads in
exe files (it doesn't mention pif files).  Also its finding myDoom in
the zip, but the only file in the zip is a pif file containing a
different virus??? Where did MyDoom go?

I suspect that Spaces is a false positive - if you managed to quarantine
the file you might like to send it to Sophos for further analysis.
