hax-door in zip file

I have Jesper Knudsen's antivirus contrib installed. It is set to scan incoming and outgoing email, regular and secure. Last virus def file update was 10 Oct 2006.

Today, an email with a zip file attachment made it through to my desktop email client. The zip file contained the hax-door trojan. Thankfully, I don't use Windows for email and I did detect the malware content before the attachment was unzipped.

What surprized me is that it made it past the anti-virus scan. I thought something like hax-door in a zip file is well known and would be detected.

Has something failed? Do I need to re-install the AV contrib?
