List Virus infected TOSEC disks?

I know there where times when some viruses slipped into TOSEC. I don't know if these are removed now or if they are still there?
Is there a list of which disks are infected, with which viruses?
Is it possible to run a script to check all the disks inside?
I use the TOSEC mostly with GOTEKs on A1000, which is much more convenient that browsing my ~2000 floppies collection, so not big risk. But I am also considering buying IDE to SD or IDE to CF adaptors and then these infected disks may bring some trouble in the future.

Aren't the disks infected already tagged with the [v] tag ?

Like in this case

No point in removing them though since viruses are also a part of the history and should be preserved.

TOSEC is a preservation project and i agree with the fact that disks can contain viruses

I'm reminded of those movies where the CDC or equivalent have some nasty virus hidden away for research purposes and some terrorist gets a hold of it and makes an incurable plague.
