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

iptables -I INPUT -j DROP -m string -p tcp -s --dport 80
--string "default.ida"

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