Good day all -
-- This is a hoax - it was posted on McAfee's site in April of 2002. If you do as the message says it will cause problems on your machine.
-- If you get these messages - usually marked URGENT or similar - check them out first before you pass them along. You can copy the file
name into Google search engine like this " jdbgmgr.exe " and it will take you to a variety of sites that should reveal it as a hoax very quickly. Or
you can go to your choice of Virus program's site and check. Or search for virus hoaxes on the internet. The reason it is not found by a virus
checker is that it is not a virus. It is a part of your Windows system files necessary for operation of the computer - Java in this case.
-- There are many of these hoaxes around. Spread by those who make access to your system. Lock down the system with a firewall and
proper settings in your Email program.
