Here is an excerpt:
In April 2002 there appeared a hoax message concerning a new virus
that was reportedly discovered in Windows utility JDBGMGR.EXE. The
jdbgmgr is a standard windows component that is found in every
windows installation, it is used as Java debugger manager in
Microsoft Java runtime engine. We checked several versions of this
utility from Windows installations and found nothing malicious in
Please ignore this hoax or anything similar warning about jdbgmgr.exe
and don't pass it on.
If you have deleted JDBGMGR.EXE from your system, it can be restored
by installing updated version of Microsft Virtual Machine or Internet
Please note that some e-mail worms (for example, Magistr) might
sometimes send an infected JDBGMGR.EXE in an e-mail attachment, but
this infection is caused by Magistr not JDBGMGR by itself. So the
bottom line is, if you receive JDBGMGR.EXE or any other windows
component by email, it is most probably a file infected by a virus.
If you find JDBGMGR.EXE from your system directory, it is most
probably a clean file.
