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 them. 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 Explorer. 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. that's from the F-Prot site :) ----- Original Message ----- From: Omar Ghazwan Al-Mukhtar To: Undisclosed-Recipient:; Sent: Tuesday, May 07, 2002 6:43 PM Subject: Fw: PLEASE DO NOT DELETE THIS MESSAGE THERE IS AVIRUS AND YOUR COMPUTERS MIGHT BE INFECTED.

Hello all Please check your C drive for this virus that sends itself to all the people in your address book. It is not an email, it is an exe file and will stay in your C drive for 14 days before destroying everything apparently. It was on our computer, sent to us from someone else who had it sent to them. There are instructions below as to how to get rid of it butplease ensure you delete the file when you find it (DO NOT DOUBLE CLICK ON IT) and then delete all items in your recycle bin and then send this e-mail on to all the people in your address books. I checked and YES IT WAS ON MY COMPUTER IN C DRIVE This is AUTOMATICALLY SENT TO ALL CONTACTS STORED IN THE ADDRESS LIST. YOU ARE ONE OF THE CONTACTS IN MY LIST. We understand that the virus stays hidden for 14 days before destroying the operating system. To eliminate the virus you must do the following : 1- Click on "START" and then click on "FIND" 2- In FIND click on FILES or FOLDERS then write the name of the file jdbgmgr.exe 3-Make sure you are searching in C DRIVE 4-The virus has an icon like a Grey Teddy Bear 5- DO NOT OPEN IT.
