Message is blocked in virus scanning

I have a MailScanner setup deployed where I log data to a SQL database in the same way as MailWatch.

“Always Looked Up Last = &MailDataLogging”

During the night I received a message that triggered an attachment warning message to be sent to the recipient instead of delivering the message.

"At Wed Nov 14 00:01:39 2018 the virus scanner said:
   MailScanner: Attempt to hide real filename extension

This does however not show up in the SQL database, which means that it seems to have been stopped before it was logged to the database.
Is there a way to make sure that even such messages are still logged so that we can see them from whatever system reads the database?
