Subject: virus problem from me possibly
I've been nailed with a nasty address book virus and somebody sent me
this email to find it and get rid of it. Apparently Norton's and
MacAfee don't clean this rat. Since you all are in my address book, it
may have infected your systems.
Here is the message I received, and sure enough, I had the file in my
windows systems file. Please take a moment and follow the instructions!
I just received a message today from one of my friends in my Address
Their Address Book had been infected by a virus and it was passed on to
computer. My Address Book, in turn, has been infected. The virus
jdbgmgr.exe) is not detected by Norton or McAfee anti-virus systems.
virus sits quietly for 14 days before damaging the system. It's sent
automatically by the messenger and by the Address Book, whether or not
sent emails to your contacts. I have checked, found it, and deleted it.
Here's how to check for the virus and how to get rid of it:
1. Go to start, Find or Search option.
2. In the files/folder option, write the name jdbgmgr.exe
3. Be sure you search your C: drive
4. click "find now"
5. the virus has a teddy bear icon with the name jdbgmgr.exe
DO NOT OPEN IT
6. Right click and delete it. It will then go to the Recycle Bin
7. Go to the Recycle Bin and delete it there as well.
IF YOU FIND THE VIRUS, YOU MUST CONTACT ALL THE PEOPLE IN YOUR
SO THEY CAN ERADICATE IT IN THEIR OWN ADDRESS BOOKS. SORRY ABOUT
SURE EVERYONE IN MY ADDRESS BOOK WILL HAVE IT.
