I agree this is a nuisance.  I deal with it by filtering mail with 
subject "Virus Detected" into a separate folder at the local mail 
delivery agent level.  True, the folder will receive real virus 
notifications as well as SaneSecurity detections, but that doesn't 
bother me too much.  A cronjob cleans items older than 10 days out of 
the folder so it doesn't grow too large.  If I haven't read it by then 
it probably isn't important.
