It is viewed as an "Other" type of infection, and as such handled (IMO
correctly so) as a potential virus... and thus put in the virus
quarantine. Why would you like to do it differently?

Don't think so, no. Unless you ditch the filename/-type things (simply
turn them off) and do some specific SA rules to replace them... and
then do SA rule hit actions for them, or set some silly scores;-)...

... which would land them there...

But again... Why would you need it? If you have a compelling reason,
I'm sure Jules can dream something up...:-D
