Default Viruses in email... LOTS!

Okay, another problem. I'm receiving about 1 virus per a hour, as it seems (So far I got 50+ viruses in email).

I contacted my friend (who is also my host for my website and email) and he said everyone he's hosting is having same problem and he will look into this deeper.

Here is the header information:
Return-path: <snooper_UK@hotmail.com>
Received: from ROHIT-D47IKGRHD (unverified [218.188.58.108]) by sidrahq.com
(Rockliffe SMTPRA 5.3.4) with ESMTP id <B0000345231@ns1.dmginc.net> for <mack@sidrahq.com>;

Could this be a virus on the server?

Thanks for your help!

tell your friend that has the server to update his exchange server and it can replace those viruses with blank text files
