I see that there are spaces in some signature names of some Sanesecurity 
archives (doppelstern.hdb, winnow.attachments.hdb, 
winnow_malware.hdb...), so I've added this line:

$virusname =~ s/ //;

after the split (line 1624 of :

($keyword, $virusname, $filename) = split(/:: /, $line, 3);

to delete spaces in the name of the virus.
Perhaps there is a better place to do it, but it works fine for me.
