    Also, many people, including me, have been getting emails saying that a virus called "jdbgmgr.exe" with a teddy bear icon has invaded many PCs, and that it sits quietly for 14 days before it begins harming the system.
    Let me tell you now, the email is a hoax! www.symantec.com, a reliable antivirus website, confirms this. The jdbgmgr program is no virus, but actually is Java Debugging Manager! So far I believe that deleting it would only be bad if you were a Java programmer, but still...
    As long as you ruthlessly and constantly update and patch Windows and your antivirus programs, there is really no virus that can "sneak into" your system.

    Uh, i was under the impression that you couldn't get the virus unless you downloaded the file. So, don't download the file and you'll be safe.

    I stand corrected, it can just try to get into your PC. That lil' bugger!! I just bought the Norton Anti-Virus thing about a week ago as well. I went ahead and did the live update thing, but i'm going to do the patch as well, just for giggles.

    I just got viruses, It came in via a gif on website i visited, A trojan horse with a virus hidden inside it, double whammy badness. It completely scrambled my hard drive and killed My system outright. Norton domestic has no antivirus definition for it, Even Norton corporate has no definition for it. You cannot stop this thing which since my PC died I have no record of what the damn thing was called. I know several UK peoiple who have been virused too so it's a major problem especially as a large proportion of PC users are retired folk who don't really know what they're doing and open random e-mails because they sound interesting Thus spreading and aiding the b******s who send these viruses out in the first place. My system infection was recieved from a fairly innocuous website. Nothing shady or pervy, just a regular site for information. They used a virused gif and Voila! dead system.
    If Norton/Symantec don't have a definiotion and cure for this thing which behaves much like the old MTX virus then there's not a lot your domestic antivirus programmes can do. Norton is the best out there but even they are fallible with viruses specifically targeting the antivirus programme and switching off the protection so they can invade the PC. There's some really nasty mean spirited b*****s out there. It's all very well to target large companies you have a gripe with but those large companies also serve ordinary folk and an attack on the company is an attack on the ordinary folk the virus senders clainm to represent. It's just another form of terrorism really. Law should treat them no differently.

    How can you have a virus in a .GIF image? The format isn't self-executable, it's an image format. Or was it a virus renamed as a .GIF? (If that's the case, what browser did this happen with? Netscape I know won't load that sort of thing up if it claims to be an image, I thought the same was with IE as well.)
