As I said, it's not a bug, or a virus (not that you can have a virus under 
unix).  The logrotate daemon is behaving as-designed.  Just edit your 
config files if you don't want the log rotated out.  Or set it to rotate 
less frequently, or not to preserve so many logs.

As for deleting your logs, rm -f error*.gz should do you.
