This virus hoax is going to drive everyone crazy.  I've seen this hoax
appear so many times over the last month, it's ridiculous.  Ken's right:
check first.  Don't go off and delete important files.

Sigh.  This is a hoax.  The jdbgmgr.exe file is a normal part of Windows
-- it's a part of the Java Debug Manager.  DON'T DELETE IT.

Before you send off any messages like this, please, please, folks, check
to make sure it's not a hoax -- 99% of them are.  Easiest way to confirm
it is to visit Symantec's web site:

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/hoax.html

This one's listed at:

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/jdbgmgr.exe.file
.hoax.html

And even if the virus threat WERE real, this list isn't the place to
post it.
