The colon is correct. It should be there in Spam-Virus Header in
MailScanner.conf as it defines the header and the colon is part of the
header. The lack of a colon in 'header' in the spamassassin file is also
correct as this just references the 'name' of the header which does not
include the colon.

Did you by chance change your org-name? I.e. I have

Spam-Virus Header = X-%org-name%-MailScanner-SpamVirus-Report:

in MailScanner.conf and

header MS_FOUND_SPAMVIRUS exists:X-GPC-MailScanner-SpamVirus-Report

in spamassassin. This only works if

%org-name% = GPC

in MailScanner.conf.

If the above does not solve the problem, please post exactly what you
have in Mailscanner.conf for "Spam-Virus Header" and "Virus Names Which
Are Spam". In particular, does your "Virus Names Which Are Spam"
pattern(s) match the virus name?
