I do not think there is a way to keep them out of the log, on the security
list they went around on this and I do not remember any specific resolution
which would keep them out of the log files. (anyone know of a way to avoid
logging these entries?)

This is included in SuSE's official 2.4.16 kernel. Don't know about 2.4.10

iptables -I INPUT -j DROP -m string -p tcp -s --dport 80 --string

(Adjust the string to suit other virus patterns). This will drop the attempt
at the firewall level, before it ever gets to your apache.
