  • Subject: [iris-photos] VIRUS WARNING HOAX

THIS VIRUS WARNING IS A HOAX. (and an old one at that, making the rounds again)



Always, always, always visit one of the anti-virus websites to check on a virus warning before taking any action or forwarding warning messages. I know we mean well, but always check.

Very simple to do.....just the follow the clear instructions

address book was infected with a virus by someone who had me in his/her address book and as a result so has yours, because your address is in my book.

The virus is called JDBGMGR.EXE and is not detected by Norton or McAfee anti-virus programs. It sits quietly for 14 days before damaging the system. It is sent automatically by messenger and by the address book, whether or not you send emails. I AM REALLY SORRY ABOUT THIS, HOWEVER, the good news is it is really easy to get rid of it.
