Teddy Bear Virus Hoax

Thursday - August 19th., 2004
Do you remember the Teddy Bear virus hoax from a year or two ago?  This was the email instructing you to delete the file named, jdbgmgr.exe.  It seems this hoax email is making the rounds again.  If you get one of these, just disregard it.  The file named above is a valid system file for your computer, so please don't delete it.

See John Myers' InnerCircuits article, Useful Information, from November of 2002 for a further discussion of computer viruses.
