      See below:<br><br>Symantec Security Response
      encourages you to ignore any messages regarding this hoax.
      It is harmless and is intended only to cause
      unwarranted concern. <br><br><br>Type: Hoax
      <br><br><br>Description:<br><br><br>The following hoax email was first reported in
      Brazil, and the original email was in Portuguese. Other
      language versions are in circulation. Currently, the
      English language versions are most
      common.<br><br><br>CAUTIONS:<br><br>This particular email message is a hoax. The file that
      is mentioned in the hoax, however, Sulfnbk.exe, is a
      Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me utility that is used to restore
      long file names, and like any .exe file, it can be
      infected by a virus that targets .exe files.<br><br>NOTE:
      The Sulfnbk.exe file is not required to run Windows.
      It may be necessary if you need to restore long file
      names if the file names become corrupted. For
      additional information, read the Microsoft Knowledge Base
      article Description of Sulfnbk.exe and How to Replace the
      Program File (Q301316) <br><br>The virus/worm
      W32.Magistr.24876@mm can arrive as an attachment named Sulfnbk.exe.
      The Sulfnbk.exe file used by Windows is located by
      default in the C:\Windows\Command folder.<br><br>NOTE:
      The C:\Windows\Command folder is the usual default
      location for this file. It is possible that if you have a
      custom installation, or a special configuration that was
      installed by the computer manufacturer, the file could be
      in a different location.<br><br>If the file is
      located in any other folder (except as noted), or arrives
      as an attachment to a email message, then it is
      possible that the file is infected. In this case, if a
      scan with the latest virus definitions and with NAV
      set to scan all files does not detect the file as
      being infected, quarantine and submit the file to SARC
      for analysis by following the instructions in the
      document How to submit a file to SARC using Scan and
      Deliver. <br><br><br>If you have deleted the Sulfnbk.exe
      file from the C:\Windows\Command folder and want to
      know how to restore the file, see the How to restore
      the Sulfnbk.exe file section at the end of this
      document.<br><br>Jim
