    Well, this 'virus' is turning out to be a fair bit of trouble... We've received 5 emails in the last two days from people with the warning, and a couple of the staff here actually fell for it and deleted the file. I thought it was funny to start with, but now it's starting to get out of hand...

    Yeah this thing is kinda stupid, thats like someone telling ppl to search for "*.sys" and delete everything that comes up with because they are virus files.

    This is what somebody told me a few weeks ago, this is a rather pathetic, like the irish virus....

    The way I see it is that the more you learn about the function of your computer and operating system the better off you will be.
    Even the effort taken to get the basics pays off in spades.
    An awful lot of folks treat the PC as if it were an alternative television. I've always felt sorry for those folks because they don't realize the power of the tool in front of them.

    Of course it would be nice if PC's worked as well as TV's but we are far from being at that point. :laugh:

    This is the "warning" I got: :rolleyes:


    Dear Customer,
    Capital Security Solutions' support team would like to bring to
    your attention a Hoax that has just been released. Also known as the
    Teddy Bear hoax it is very similar to the recent SULFNBK.EXE hoax. The
    JDBGMGR.EXE hoax refers to a very destructive virus that isn't detected
    by Anti Virus software and will destroy the C: drive after 14 days. Full
    details from the Norman web page are as follows:

    *************************

    JDBGMGR.EXE

    General characteristics:

    * Type: Hoax
    * Spreading mechanism: None
    * Email characteristics:
    * Body:
    I got a virus from someone and it was unfortunately
    automatically sent to my whole address book-it is transmitted through
    outlook and messenger (so it may not have come through any
    attachment!)--.
    If you've gotten this virus(called jdbgmgr.exe), it
    sleeps in your computer for 14days before eating up your hard disk (C:)
    and ruining your whole system. Unfortunately, Norton or other anti
    viruses can't detect this virus so you have to eliminate it yourself. Do
    this quick check to see if your computer has it and erase it. Sorry for
    the inconvenience.
    1. go to Start and push Find (or Search)
    2. write jdbgmgr.exe
    3. be sure that you are looking drive C hard drive
    4. push "find now"
    5. If the virus appears, it's icon is a little bear with

    jdbgmgr.exe, DON T OPEN FOR ANY REASON
    6. PUSH the right button of you mouse and select
    Delete
    7. go to the trash bin and delete the file

    * Attachment: None
    * Destructivity: None
    * Detected by virus detection files published: Pending
    * Virus characteristics first published: 02 May 2002 11:00 (CET)
    * Virus characteristics latest update: 02 May 2002 11:20 (CET)

    Additional description of malicious program:

    Type:
    This is another computer virus hoax, a clone of the SULFNBK.EXE hoax
    that has plagued the world for a while already.

    Spreading mechanism:
    The body text mentioned above may vary. Hoaxes are typically changed a
    lot as people translate the text manually. The file jdbgmgr.exe is of
    course completely innocent - it is the Microsoft Java Debug Manager.

    Detection and removal:
    Norman Virus Control does not scan for false virus warnings.

    I was thinking of sending a message to everyone I work with, saying that if they EVER get anything IT related in their email, that they should check with me first.. There's been hoaxes and false warnings all over the place lately....
