Symantec with w32.fujacks

My symantec anti-virus keeps finding a worm by the name of w32.fujacks. I did some online research and it turns out this is a worm that spreads through removavle drives. The good thing is my antivirus picks it up and quarantine it. The problem is that the antivirus keeps scanning the quarantine folder and keeps telling me that a new fujack worm has been found and once again places it in the quarantine folder... and then it scans that folder again and again... it keeps looping it. Is the only solution to add the quarantine folder to the Exception list so it doesn't get scanned ?

thank you for your help.

I have been doing this... deleting from the quarantine folder. Its just surprises me that it scans the quarantine folder.... I read online that this is a bug in Symantec v11d. Can someone confirm this rumor.
