I believe, that you did not notice one thing - the output was under debug 
= 5 and under lower debug level the name of the virus is not printed. Why? 
On line shows the virus name (but only under higher debug level) and some 
next doesn't? The result is, that if I lower the debug level, I don't know 
the virus name...
