[Dshield] Possible virus

In my opinion, a vCard (vcf) is a reasonable exception. It is quite common
for them to be sent. They are not an executable. If there is not any
vulnerability caused by opening them then it is reasonable to allow them. Of
course I know it is much easier to suggest such a thing than to implement.
